§ 34. Mr. Lawson
asked the Postmaster-General what was the number of boys of school-leaving age recruited into the Post Office as youths in training on the engineering side in Scotland in each of the past three years; and what propor- 122W tion of total such recruitment for Great Britain these numbers represent.
§ Mr. Mawby
Youths in training are normally recruited between the ages of 16 and 18. The numbers recruited in Scotland were: 78 in 1960; 109 in 1961; and 224 in 1962. These numbers represent 7–8 per cent., 5.5 per cent. and 9.9 per cent. respectively of the total of such recruitment for Great Britain.
