12. Mr. ANDERSON
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the overtime that is now being worked by Post Office engineers, he will take steps in conjunction with the Postmaster-General, to set up suitable training 1406 centres in the Special Areas to teach suitable unemployed men Post Office engineering work, with the object of transferring these men when trained to positions of remunerative employment, and thus relieve the present staff of avoidable overtime and overwork
§ Mr. E. BROWN
I have received a communication from my right hon. Friend inviting the assistance of my Department in connection with a proposed scheme at Jarrow for the training, under Post Office auspices, of suitable unemployed men for Post Office engineering work. The matter is at present under discussion between the two Departments.
