HC Deb 31 March 1969 vol 781 cc5-6W
53. Mr. Montgomery

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what consultations she has had with the industrial training boards on the training of trade union officials.

Mr. Hattersley

Guidance from the Central Training Council on the development of shop steward training was sent to the training boards in 1967. Most boards now make provision in their schemes for grants towards the costs of attendance at approved courses of training for shop stewards in their industries.
