HC Deb 07 March 1928 vol 214 cc1122-3
22. Mr. LUNN

asked the Minister of Labour what is the total number of training establishments in the area covered by the West Riding County Council for juveniles and for youths up to 21 years of age, and where they are situate; and what additional training establishments are to be provided during 1928?


There are no juvenile unemployment centres in the area of the West Riding County Council, though the opening of a centre at Selby and the admission of boys from the council's area to a proposed centre at Barnsley are at present under considera tion. Three centres are open in Sheffield and Leeds, but these are established by the local education authorities in those areas and not by the West Riding County Council. As regards the establishment of additional juvenile unemployment centres I am ready, provided that a sufficient number of juveniles are likely to attend, to consider sympathetically any proposals local education authorities may wish to submit.
