HC Deb 06 February 1941 vol 368 c1102W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Minister of Labour the number of trainees in the 32 Government training centres for war work; and which districts record the greatest shortage?

Mr. Bevin

It would not be in the national interest to state the numbers of trainees in the training centres. I can say however that I am anxious to see larger numbers coming forward for training. This applies particularly to the Eastern, North Eastern, Midlands and Southern areas.
