HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 cc1538-9W

asked the Minister of Labour why unemployed men who are not in receipt of unemployment benefit are refused facilities for training; and whether she is prepared to make arrangements to allow these men the same facilities as those in receipt of benefit?


The provision of training for unemployed men not in receipt of benefit is for several reasons a matter of special difficulty. It is not the case, however, that they have been entirely excluded from the facilities for training provided by the Ministry, and I have recently made arrangements for giving them greater opportunities. In connection with this matter generally, I should like to call attention to my reply to the hon. Member for Bilston (Mr. J. Baker) on 18th July, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
