Mr. CHAMBERS:

I shall be delighted to deal immediately with the question asked by the leader of the opposition. The 165.000 young men and women received training of various kinds. It has taken the form of occupational training, physical training, learner-ship and apprenticeship training, and so on. Forestry training also formed a part of the programme. Of the 48,000 who took training designed to provide immediate employment, 15,500 have been placed in permanent employment. I believe that answers sufficiently the question I have been asked. Under the scheme
3,400,000 days training have been given.
