HC Deb 01 July 1968 vol 767 c1073
29. Mr. Kenneth Baker

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity why the Engineering Industry Training Board does not pay a training grant for students doing one year's thick sandwich industrial training courses.

Mr. Hattersley

The Board has recently decided to pay supplementary as well as general grant for the two: one: one type of sandwich course.

Mr. Baker

Does the supplementary grant also apply to the thick industrial training course, such as the one:three: one year course and so on?

Mr. Hattersley

I understand that the one: three: one course is not generally regarded as a thick course, but, rather, the two: one: one. All sandwich courses are covered by the general grant, with varying degrees of application.
