§ Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Minister of Labour what number of men have passed through the Government training centres in the present year; what number obtained employment at the conclusion of their period of training; and what number have obtained permanent work?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
During the first six months of the present year, 3,110 men completed courses at Government training centres of which number 2,643 were placed in employment, and 3,092 men completed courses at transfer instructional centres of which number 2,984 were placed in employment. Every effort is made to place the men in work which, if they prove satisfactory, will provide them with permanent employment, and in the great majority of cases a course at a centre has enabled the mea to get back into regular work.
