asked the Minister of Labour whether the Government training centre at Park Royal is receiving from South Wales and Durham a number of unemployed would-be trainees for the catering trades adequate to the accommodation at Park Royal; and, if not, will be arrange for local authorities in the distressed areas to send to Park Royal an increased number of suitable persons to be trained to fill the numerous vacancies on the staffs of hotels and restaurants in London and the South of England?
There has been for some months a shortage of candidates for the waiters' training class at the Park Royal Training Centre, but as a result of special steps to bring the facilities to the notice of suitable unemployed men the number of applications has increased during the past few weeks. In selecting men for this course preference is given to those coming from the depressed areas, including South Wales and Durham; recruitment is effected through the Employment Exchanges. There are still a few vacancies in the class in addition to those which will continue to arise as men pass into employment on the completion of the course.
