§ 29. Mr. T. SMITH
asked the Minister of Labour what steps she is taking to make information available with regard to the professions and occupations suitable for boys and girls leaving the public secondary schools?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
As the answer is rather long I propose, with my hon. Friend's permission, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT; but may I say that I hope my hon. Friend and other hon. Members will take the opportunity of reading the pamphlets which are referred to in the reply.
§ Following is the answer:
§ The Ministry of Labour in collaboration with the Incorporated Associations of Headmasters and Headmistresses of Public Secondary Schools is issuing a series of pamphlets under the title of the "Choice of Career Series." A list of the pamphlets already issued and in preparation is printed below. In addition to the pamphlets on this list a number of others are in contemplation.
§ The pamphlets are placed on sale by His Majesty's Stationery Office at a price not exceeding 2d. each. Copies of the pamphlets as they are issued are sent to all local committees for juvenile employment and to headmasters and headmistresses of recognised public secondary schools, University Appointments Boards., etc.
§ List of Pamphlets.
§ *Navigating Officers in the Merchant Navy.
§ *Commercial Appointments.
