Of a total of 54,600 young men, applicants for unemployment assistance, between the ages of 18 and 25 who were interviewed in 1938, about 43,000 or 79 per cent. were unwilling on various grounds to apply for admission to an instructional centre. About 14,700 of this total were men with dependants and I should like to make it clear that in a large number of cases the grounds advanced by the applicants were substantial. Similar figures are not available in the case of claimants to unemployment benefit.
I am not aware that there is any need for that, except in particular cases, and those who have advocated it have always made it clear that they realised that those cases were few and raised special difficulties.
On a point of Order. Seeing that there are 190 Questions on the Paper, could you not use your discretion, Mr. Speaker, when many questions are put down to one Minister, and divide them over several days, according to their relative importance and urgency, instead of all the questions being taken on one day?
