HC Deb 06 June 1924 vol 174 c1605W

asked the Minister of Labour what is the number of ex-service men who have been trained under the training scheme; and how many of such men have been found improverships?


The number of men in Great Britain and Ireland who have been trained under the Industrial Training Scheme is 83,000. I have no information showing the number of improverships found before September, 1921, but nearly 18,000 have been found since. The hon. Member will, of course, realise that an improvership period forms part of the training in certain trades only.
