§ 5. Major-General Sir Alfred Knox
asked the Minister of Labour how many training centres for disabled ex-service men now exist; and the total number of men who can undergo training at one time?
§ Mr. Bevin
Separate training centres are not at present provided for disabled ex-Service men, but facilities for them are provided in 18 Government training centres, supplemented by three residential centres run by voluntary organisations 833 with financial assistance from my Department, and by 57 technical colleges. There are 771 disabled ex-Service men at present in training, and additional training places are available for such men, so far as these may be needed.
§ Sir A. Knox
Does the right hon. Gentleman consider the facilities for training these men sufficient, considering the large number of casualties we may have?
