asked the Minister for the Civil Service what percentage of employees aged between 16 and 21 years is released one day per week in the Civil Service.

Mrs. Hart

Seventy per cent. of the 10,200 staff in post at 31st July, 1968 who were under 18. Statistics are not available which relate specifically to the age group 18 to 21, but a substantial proportion of those in this category also go on day release and similar courses.
