HC Deb 12 February 1931 vol 248 cc558-9
11. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Minister of Labour the present numbers of men and women in training centres and the extent of the accommodation which is at present available?


AS the answer is in tabular form, I will circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.


Can the right hon. Lady give the number of training places and the total number that can be accommodated?


Certainly. The totals are: number of training places at present provided, 6,807; number in training on the 7th February, 6,214.

Centre. Number of Training Places at present provided by the Ministry. Number in training during week ending 7th February, 1931.
(1) (2) (3)
Government Training Centres 3,797* 3,766
Transfer Instructional Centres 1,504 1,125
Women and Girls.
Centres conducted by the Central Committee on Women's Training and Employment:
(a) Non-residential (a) 1,366 (a) 1,256
(b) Besidential (b) 140† (b) 67
Total 6,807 6,214
The differences in the figures in Columns (2) and (3) are mainly accounted for by the fact that trainees are leaving the Centres daily, for example, to take up employment, and short delays in filling the vacant places are sometimes unavoidable.
* This figure does not include 400 additional places provided by the opening of the new Government Training Centre at Waddon on 9th February
† Included in this figure are three Centres with a total capacity of 98 which have recently been taken over by the Central Committee and in which only 26 trainees are at present in residence.
