HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c145W
53. Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans he has to enable the staffs and facilities of technical colleges to be available for the retraining of redundant workers.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

Local education authorities and colleges of further education have already been asked to help as far as they can in meeting local demands for adult retraining facilities. The colleges have taken over all first year apprenticeship training classes, which has released 650 places for retraining adults in Government Training Centres.
