HC Deb 27 January 1944 vol 396 c830
1. Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Labour whether any consideration has or is being given to the cases of young people who, because of the war, have been denied careers to which they might have aspired and may be unemployed when the war ends; and are adequate training schemes going to be inaugurated.

The Minister of Labour (Mr. Ernest Bevin)

This subject was dealt with at some length in my reply of 25th March last to the hon. Member for Pontypridd (Mr. Pearson), of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy. I am also sending my hon. Friend the published leaflet describing the Government's Further Education and Training Scheme. The provision of training of certain kinds not covered by the scheme already announced is under consideration.
