HC Deb 20 November 1947 vol 444 c212W
99. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Education what steps are being taken for the training of youth leaders; and whether it is his intention to extend these facilities.

Mr. Tomlinson

I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of Circular 53 issued in June, 1945. Full-time courses of one year are provided at five university institutions and a growing number of shorter courses are organised by local authorities and voluntary bodies. I expect shortly to receive the report of a special committee on this and other relevant matters.
