2. Mr. TEMPLE MORRIS
asked the Minister of Labour whether facilities are available for Members of this House to visit departmental training centres; and, if so, which centres will be so accessible in the Easter Recess?
§ The Minister of LABOUR (Sir Henry Betterton)
While I regret that I cannot provide transport facilities, visits of hon. Members to the training centres administered by my Department and to the centres of the Central Committee on Women's Training and Employment are always welcomed. Apart from a few of the day centres for girls and young, women, all the centres will be open during the Easter Recess, except of course during the actual Easter holiday. I am circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT a complete list of the centres.
§ Mr. PETHERICK
Can my right hon. Friend say if it is necessary to make any appointments for hon. Members when they visit these centres?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
No, Sir, it is not strictly necessary at all, but, of course, it is a convenience to the managers if they know that hon. Members are coming. At the same time, I want to make it perfectly clear that I do not want any special preparations to be made for the benefit of hon. Members, because I want them to see the centres exactly as they are carried on from day to day.
§ Mr. SCRYMGEOUR-WEDDERBURN
May I ask my right hon. Friend whether his attention has been drawn to articles on this subject in the "Daily Herald"?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
Yes, Sir. I have seen them, and I am very glad to see them, and I hope that they will be widely read.
