Up to the 26th October, 70 education authorities had submitted formal proposals for the provision of courses of instruction for unemployed boys and girls. It is not practicable to differentiate between urban and rural areas, as many proposals cover both types of area, but 28 of the proposals are from the Loudon County Council, counties of cities and county boroughs, and 42 from counties. My Department has received particulars of a number of other proposals though these have not yet been formally submitted.
§ Mr. MORGAN JONES
Can the right hon. Gentleman say for how many young persons these schemes are intended to cater?
