HC Deb 30 October 1957 vol 575 c52W
Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Labour the total number of Hungarians accepted for training for work in the mines; how many of these completed their training; how many have been found work in the mines; what is the cost up to date of the training; and what is the cost of maintaining those who have not found employment.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I am informed by the National Coal Board that 4,186 Hungarians were accepted for training for work in the mines. Of this total, 891 have completed their training and 482 have been placed in work in the mines.

The last two parts of the Question are a matter for the National Coal Board.
