HC Deb 19 November 1970 vol 806 cc467-8W
72. Mr. Willey

asked the Secretary of State for Employment why there were 425 places unfilled at Government training centres in the Northern Region on 28th October compared with 272 unfilled places on 13th October, 1969.

Mr. Bryan

The increase is mainly the result of restricted recruitment for the construction trades to which my hon. Friend referred in his reply to the hon. Member's Question on 4th November.—[Vol. 805, c.382–3.]

74. Mr. Varley

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if, within the current programme bringing the number of Government training centres up to 54, to be completed by spring 1972, he will provide a Government training centre within the borough of Chesterfield.

Mr. Bryan

The current programme does not include a Government Training Centre at Chesterfield but my right hon. Friend will give full consideration to the needs of the area when deciding the location of new Centres in the programme of further expansion which he announced on 4th November.
