§ Mr. WESTWOOD
asked the First Commissioner of Works, as representing the Secretary for Scotland, if he is aware 2392W there are large numbers of young persons between 14 and 17 years of age who are unemployed; and, seeing that these young persons would be better employed receiving technical education than wasting valuable time, what action, if any, does he propose taking to deal with this problem?
§ Sir J. BAIRD
I would refer the hon. Member to the statement made on Friday last by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour, with whom my Noble Friend is in consultation on the matter.
