HC Deb 06 February 1963 vol 671 cc61-2W
56. Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the continuing poor response of employers to the need for day release of trainees; and what immediate steps he intends to take to improve the situation.

Lady Tweedsmuir

The number of day release students increased by 11 per cent. Last year, and I hope that it will increase still further as a result of such measures as the strengthening of contacts between industry and the colleges, the opening of new and improved buildings and the proposals made in the White Paper on Industrial Training.
