HC Deb 26 October 1966 vol 734 c1020
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mrs. Shirley Williams)

With permission, I would like to make a personal statement.

In speaking in Monday's debate on redeployment, I said that there are now eight Government training centres in Scotland and that when the party opposite left office there was precisely one. I regret that I was in error here. The facts are that from 1952 to mid-1963 Scotland had one centre. In October, 1964, there were four centres. Today, there are seven centres, and an eighth is due to be opened next year.

I apologise to the House for inadvertently misleading hon. Members owing to misreading a table.
