§ Mr. Gunter
There is a placing service at each Government training centre which works closely with the placing service of the employment exchanges. About 95 per cent. of trainees who complete courses obtain suitable employment.
§ Mr. Bence
Is my right hon. Friend aware that it is very difficult in an area such as Clydebank and Dumbarton where we have a Government training centre in which men have been trained for skilled jobs in industry when at the same time there are large redundancies of skilled men? Is he aware that this very weekend an English company is recruiting labour in Clydebank for England while trained men in Dumbarton cannot get a job?
§ Mr. Gunter
I am sure that Scotland still needs skilled men. The Dumbarton training centre was opened only in September, 1964, but of the six trainees who have completed the course five have been placed in employment.
§ Mr. Godber
Can the right hon. Gentleman say anything about the situation, of which he will be aware, where 7 there has been difficulty in the past in placing people after training? Is he getting co-operation now from the people concerned?
