HC Deb 13 June 1961 vol 642 cc32-3W
Mr. Hannan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the total cost, per trainee in residence, of training, free board and allowances at the Forestry Commission's two year training course; and whether all such trainees enter employment with the Commission only.

Mr. Maclay

The net cost for each student on the last two-year course at the Forester Training Schools in Great Britain was £1,034. Of the 60 students who completed the course, 41 joined the Forestry Commission, 12 had been nominated by the Government of Northern Ireland, three had been nominated by Colonial Governments and four took up employment elsewhere.
