§ 45. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Minister of Labour the number of training and reconditioning centres in the Wales Division and in the United Kingdom; the number of persons in each of the two areas who have been passed through such centres in the last six months; and the number of such centres in contemplation for the next year?
The total number of these centres for men of 18 years of age or over is 37, of which five are in Wales and two others are on the Welsh border and reserved for Welshmen. The number of men who completed their courses during the six months ending 28th June was 7,578, of whom about 1,600 were Welshmen. Only a small number of these passed through the Welsh centres, none of which has yet been open for any length of time. The provision to be made for next year is under consideration.
