§ Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Works when the Building Trades Technical College at Sydenham was opened; what was its cost; and if he will make a 8W statement as to the extent it has been used and the number of trainees with the average length of stay since it was erected.
§ Mr. Key
The buildings erected at Sydenham for a Ministry of Labour Building Trades Training Centre were not used for that purpose, owing to the decision to reduce the number of training places. The cost of erection was about £212,000. The buildings have been allocated in part for a technical school, and the remainder for industry.
