HC Deb 26 February 1965 vol 707 cc158-9W
Mr. Garrett

asked the Minister of Labour how many places were available for training and retraining at the Felling Training Centre in the years 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961 and 1962; and what was the size of the waiting lists for these years.

Mr. Marsh

The Training Centre at Felling was reopened in September, 1961. In December of that year there were 90 training places and in December, 1962, 81. The number on the waiting list on those dates was 53 and 43 respectively. In the years 1958 to 1961 the number of training places for draughtsmen housed at the Industrial Rehabilitation Unit at Felling has varied from 12 to 24. I regret the number on the waiting list for training for those years is not available.
