asked the Minister of Labour how many juvenile unemployment instruction centres are now in operation; how many of these are housed in schools specially built for this purpose and how many in other kinds of premises?

Lieut.-Colonel MUIRHEAD

During the week ended 19th February, the latest date for which statistics are available, 233 junior instruction centres and classes were in operation. Two junior instruc- tion centres are housed in buildings specially erected for the purpose, and the remainder in buildings previously existing. A number of proposals for the erection of new buildings are at present under consideration.
