Of the £10 million programme authorised for building for technical education my right hon. Friend has already approved projects to the value of £7,300,000. He is at present considering further projects to the value of £1,200,000 and hopes soon to receive others covering the remaining £1,500,000. He is taking every opportunity by means of conferences and other forms of publicity to encourage employers and young workers to make full use of the facilities avaliable.
