HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 cc162-3W
109. Mr. Prentice

asked the Minister of Labour what has been the response of small employers to his scheme for providing first-year apprenticeship training at Government training centres; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. P. Thomas

I am hopeful that as a result of approaches now being made to employers, the 96 places in the first 8 engineering apprenticeship classes at G.T.C.s will be taken up in time for the classes to open in August or September.
