HC Deb 21 April 1958 vol 586 c598
17. Mr. Snow

asked the Paymaster-General how many Hungarians are now resident in hostels or elsewhere who are under training for work in the coal-mining industry.

Mr. Maudling

One hundred and thirty-one, Sir.

Mr. Snow

In giving that figure, is the right hon. Gentleman distinguishing between those who are under training and those who are considered to have been trained or who are untrainable? If so, what is the former figure?

Mr. Maudling

This is the number of men under training. I gather that there are another 41 who are seeking employment in other industries.

Mr. Neal

Is the cost of their maintenance and training still borne by the National Coal Board?

Mr. Maudling

As far as I am aware, yes.
