§ 26. Mr. Gourlay
asked the Postmaster-General what was the number of youths in training for Post Office work in the United Kingdom; what percentage of these was being trained in Scotland; and how this percentage compares with the similar percentage for 1950.
§ Mr. Gourlay
While thanking the hon. Lady for that reply, may I ask whether she does not feel that her Department could do much more to alleviate the gross unemployment of youth in Scotland?
§ Mr. G. Campbell
Can my hon. Friend say whether the decision to bring the Transatlantic cable into Britain via Oban 1257 is providing or will provide any more employment in that area or in Scotland generally?
