§ 53. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Minister of Labour whether he can estimate the rate of training and despatch of the 1,500 men from South Wales for whom he is making arrangements at Brandon and Claydon; whether there will be any special method of selecting applicants for this scheme; and whether it is proposed that the men when trained will be sent to Dominions other than Canada and Australia?
§ Mr. BETTERTON
The duration of training is normally 12 weeks and the First men will sail about the end of March. Applicants can apply either at the Employment Exchanges or through the shipping companies or their agents and before being sent to training must be approved by the Dominion Authorities. The training schemes for overseas settlement apply only to Canada and Australia.
