HC Deb 07 December 1933 vol 283 c1810

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education if he will give details of the increase in technical education facilities contemplated in those districts where unemployment is greatest?


It is not contemplated that any increase in the facilities for technical education should be specially related to districts where unemployment is greatest, since I have no reason to think that existing facilities are, generally speaking, inadequate, but I shall of course be glad to receive from my hon. Friend any definite suggestions that he has to make. The Government's proposals for instruction and training for the unemployed, both juveniles and adults, are contained in the Unemployment Bill. The Board of Education will co-operate in helping to secure the provision of such instruction and training.
