asked the Minister of Education (1) to what extent the reduction in house building in Stoke-on-Trent has affected apprenticeship courses for those employed in the building industry;
(2) to what extent the slowing down in house building has affected adult trainee courses for those employed in the building industry in Stoke-on-Trent.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
There has been no apparent effect. Enrolments for adult courses have increased steadily in recent years and, although there was some decline in 1957 in enrolments for student apprenticeship courses, there has been a recovery this year.
