HC Deb 28 February 1972 vol 832 c35W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many applications have been received for retraining; and what was the proportion successful in the last full year for which figures are available.

Mr. Bryan

I regret that the information is not available in the form requested. However, 76,919 applications for training were received in the year ending 13th December, 1971. 30,788 applications were accepted during the same period. The difference between the two figures is largely accounted for by applicants who withdrew their applications between the time they were made and the selection panel.
