As my hon. Friend is aware, steps have been taken and are contemplated for improving and extending facilities for technological training in this country. At present the plans for technical assistance towards the economic advancement of under-developed countries are still under consideration by the United Nations organisation and the specialised agencies. It is, therefore, impossible to gauge what the increased demands will be. In general, however, I have no reason to doubt that the arrangements in this country are capable of meeting reasonable demands. As regards the other part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which will be given him today by my right hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury.
