HC Deb 06 February 1947 vol 432 cc1952-3
41. Mr. Geoffrey Cooper

asked the Minister of Education when it is proposed to issue the necessary regulations in order to implement the provisions of Section 29 of the Finance Act, 1946, to enable firms to make provision for technical education related to their industry.

Mr. Hardman

No regulations are required for implementing Section 29 of the Finance Act, 1946. I hope shortly to be able to make an announcement as to the institutions which can be approved for the purposes of this Section, Meantime, I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of a circular which went out to local education authorities last May on the subject.

Mr. Cooper

Does my hon. Friend mean by that reply that he is going to issue a list of the particular institutions which will benefit by this provision? If that is the case, how will the institutions put forward their names for consideration?

Mr. Hardman

A list is, of course, available, and no doubt in due course will be issued. I think I ought to have notice of the second part of the question.
