HC Deb 06 November 1958 vol 594 c1081
2. Mr. Albu

asked the Minister of Education how many students for the diploma in technology are works based, and how many college based.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

I regret that the information is not available in this precise form.

Mr. Albu

Can the Minister say what response he is receiving from the local education authorities to the request made to them to make grants to students who are to be college based, and what response he is getting from firms who provide the in-works training compared with those students who are to be college trained?

Mr. Lloyd

In general, the response is good, but the larger number are works based.
