HC Deb 23 February 1921 vol 138 c915

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that there is a complaint among ex-service men now being trained for cabinet-making, particularly in Yorkshire, that their tuition holds out little hope of the acquisition of any practical knowledge; and whether be will investigate the matter without delay?


I am not aware that there is any complaint as to the inadequacy of the training provided in cabinet-making, and I am informed that there is no known case in Yorkshire where a man so trained has failed to obtain employment owing to lack of skill, though in certain cases it is at present impossible to place trainees in employment on account of the depression in trade. If my hon. Friend will furnish me with particulars of any cases he has in mind, I will investigate them at once.
