§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Mr. Oliver Stanley)
The total initial cost of acquiring and equipping the premises now utilised as training, instructional, &c., centres, was about £400,000. Details of the estimated cost of salaries and wages, and of equipment and maintenance for 1934 and 1935 are given in the Estimates for the Ministry of Labour for 1935 (page 25 of H.C. 50). The provision for equipment is largely dependent upon the number of new centres to be opened during the year.
