§ Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the depression in the main industries hitherto serving the Ayr Juvenile Employment Centre, he is bringing to the notice of the advisory committee the desirability of training the younger generation for work of other kinds in which the prospects of employment are better?
The instruction given at junior instruction centres is not intended to train boys and girls for specific occupations, but to maintain habits of discipline and self-respect, and by giving general training and education to facilitate their re-absorption into industry. My hon. and gallant Friend will see, therefore, that the question of the adaptation of the curriculum at the Ayr centre to specific occupations does not arise.
