HC Deb 16 February 1927 vol 202 cc920-1

asked the Minister of Labour how many men have completed the full six months' course of training under the new scheme for young unemployed at Claydon, Birmingham, Brandon, and Wallsend-on-Tyne centres, respectively; how many have left before the end of their course in order to take up employment; how many are now in training; how many have been placed on farms overseas; and whether the establishment of any more of these training centres is contemplated?


With my hon. Friend's permission, I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a statement giving the desired information.

The question of providing further training facilities is at present under consideration.

Following is the statement promised.:
