§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Miss Bondfield)
There are eight non-residential training centres and three non-residential transfer instructional centres for men. The corresponding numbers of residential centres are one and seven respectively. There are 28 non-residential and one residential training centres for women and girls conducted on behalf of the Ministry by the Central Committee on Women's Training and Employment. Two additional non-residential training centres for men and four for women will shortly be opened.
It is not true that in all these centres there are less than 1,000 women being trained at the moment, and, as there are over 200,000 more women unemployed than there were when the Government took office, will the right hon. Lady bear in mind this point when she deals with unemployment, because in all schemes for men there is not one single woman who has received employment?
§ Mr. MANDER
Can the right hon. Lady say how many of these training centres give training for domestic service?
