HC Deb 20 September 1948 vol 456 cc7-8W
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 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.
