HC Deb 02 October 1924 vol 177 cc351-2W

asked the Minister of Health whether he has taken the neces- sary steps to have a return made at regular intervals of the number of apprentices in the building trade; and whether he will arrange for such returns to be published at intervals of not more than a month?


Steps are being taken to set up the Industrial Committees which I have foreshadowed in connection with the housing scheme and, as part of the arrangements, I hope to provide for the periodical supply of statistics as to the numbers of apprentices.
