HC Deb 03 May 1956 vol 552 cc59-60W
Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Labour when the Government Training Centre at Gypsy Lane, Leicester, was opened; and what was the intention of his Department in regard to the type of person to be trained there and the future employment of such persons after successful training.

Mr. Carr

The Government Training Centre at Gypsy Lane in Leicester was opened in July, 1936, when trade and employment were expanding in order to enable suitable unemployed persons, most of whom came from what were then known as the Scheduled Depressed Areas, to be trained in various engineering and other crafts.
