HC Deb 17 May 1966 vol 728 c235W
Mr. Haseldine

asked the Minister of Labour if he will make a statement regarding the proposed retail training board; what progress is being made towards appointments to the board and what is the estimated date on which the board will be ready to commence work.

Mr. Gunter

I am still engaged in the preliminary consultations that are necessary before I decide on the precise scope of the Industrial Training Board that will include the retail distributive trades. I am therefore not yet ready to make appointments to the Board nor to estimate the date on which it will be ready to start work.
