HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 cc63-4W
17. Mr. Le Marchant

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on the progress made in the most convenient recent period in on-the-job training.

Mr. Dudley Smith

The Department's New Earnings Survey in April, 1971, showed that there were 1.2 million persons being trained under employers' arrangements at that time. Comparable figures for 1972 will not be available until towards the end of the year.
