HC Deb 24 July 1964 vol 699 cc162-3W
Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Minister of Labour if he will make a further statement about the continuation of the work of the Training Advisory Service.

Mr. Godber

In the past the Training Advisory Service has been run by a nonprofit making limited company, the Industrial Training Council Service, whose directors were appointed by the Industrial Training Council. As I foreshadowed in March last, the Industrial Training Council will shortly cease to operate and the former directors of the Industrial Training Council Service have resigned. I should like to take this opportunity of thanking them for the valuable work they have done.

In order to provide for the continuation of the work of the Training Advisory Service I have, after consultation with the Central Training Council, appointed a new Board of Directors of the limited company, whose name has been changed to the Industrial Training Service. The members of the new Board are drawn from the Central Training Council.
