HC Deb 07 March 1966 vol 725 cc416-7W
63. Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Minister of Labour what progress has been made by the Construction Industry Training Board in its examination of the nature and length of apprenticeships; and when he expects that a statement will be made.

Mr. Thornton

The Board is solely concerned with training and has decided that this must be considered separately from the length of apprenticeship. It is encouraging with grants existing forms of craft training while examining the form training should take in the future.
