HC Deb 25 April 1950 vol 474 c92W
Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Minister of Labour how many grants are being paid by his Department to students attending trade courses; what total annual sum is involved; and if he will give a list of the trades concerned.

Mr. Isaacs

The number of persons in training at 6th March last (the latest date for which figures are available) was 5,859. The annual sum involved is of the order of £1,500,000 covering payments of maintenance allowances, fares and class fees. Training is provided in over 100 trades, and I am sending a list to the hon. Member.
