HC Deb 23 October 1946 vol 427 cc401-2W
146. Mr. K. Lindsay

asked the Minister of Education how many boys are now undergoing full-time training preparatory to entering the building industry; and what are the relevant and comparable figures for 1938.

Mr. Hardman

It is not possible to supply the hon. Member with accurate figures, but the closest estimate is 13,250 in May, 1946, as compared with 1,000 in 1938.
