This scheme has been very carefully considered by a panel representing the trade concerned and by the Department, and although, unfortunately, there is at present considerable unemployment on the manufac- turing side, openings are available in jobbing and prescription houses. Training will be carried out wholly in workshops and the admission of trainees will be regulated by the openings immediately available. An extension of the periods of training will be considered if experience shows it to be necessary, but I am advised that the periods laid down are adequate.
