Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is prepared to give sympa-

which figures are available, the numbers of wholly unemployed persons on the registers of the Normanton, Castleford and Pontefract Employment Exchanges at the undermentioned dates:

thetic consideration to the request of a number of juvenile employment committees that they be given permission to arrange for the production of vocational films appropriate to the industries in their respective localities, thereby encouraging those about to leave school to enter into training for a skilled trade or occupation; and that a reasonable proportion of the expense incurred be allowed to count for grant?

Mr. E. Brown

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for East Willesden (Mr. Hammersley) on 7th February, of which I am sending him a copy.
