asked the Minister of Labour how many building trade trainees are unemployed in the London area; and how many of these are ex-Servicemen.
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Macclesfield (Air-Commodore Harvey) on 1st May, 1947.
asked the Minister of Labour the number of persons receiving instruction in the building trade at his Department's training centres; how many men are waiting to enter such centres; and how many in both categories are ex-Service men.
On 8th April, 1947, 21,196 persons, including 20,702 ex-Servicemen, were receiving training in the building trades and 12,968, including 12,399 ex-Servicemen, had been accepted and were awaiting allocation to training.
