HC Deb 23 April 1958 vol 586 c954
35. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Labour what steps he has taken or will take to convey copies of "Training for Skill" to schools, technical colleges and industry.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour and National Service (Mr. Richard Wood)

Copies of the Report "Training for Skill" have been sent to representative organisations of employers and trade unions to whom, of course, the recommendations in the Report are primarily addressed. I understand that my right hon. Friends the Minister of Education and the Secretary of State for Scotland have not felt it necessary to circulate copies of the Report to schools and technical colleges in view of the wide publicity which it has received in the educational Press.

Mr. Moss

I thank the hon. Gentleman for that reply, which is very satisfactory. Will he ask his right hon. Friend the Minister of Education to stress the importance of this Report in his circulars to local education authorities?

Mr. Wood

I will certainly ask my right hon. Friend to consider that, although I think the matter has been given considerable publicity already among schools and technical colleges.

Forward to
