§ 16. Mr. Shinwell
asked the Minister of Labour what facilities are available in the area covered by the Easington parliamentary division to enable unemployed school leavers to undergo training; and what remuneration is provided for each person during the period of training.
§ Mr. Godber
Boys from Easington can travel to Tursdale G.T.C. where first-year apprenticeship classes are being held for boys not yet taken on by employers; they are paid the agreed wage for first-year apprentices in the engineering industry. There are 24 pre-employment courses at Easington Technical College. The local education authority operates a scheme through which maintenance allowances are payable to enable young people to attend these courses without hardship.
