a proposed strategy for training and manpower managers THE INDUSTRIAL TRAINING ACT HAS, WITHIN EIGHT YEARS, produced great and identifiable gains in the training of the national labout force. By 1972 we have enough experience of its working to be able to recognise certain weaknesses, too. The consultative document proposes wide‐sweeping changes in the system which are revolutionary rather than evolutionary. What training and manpower managers have to ensure is that the benefits which have accrued from the system will be preserved and that the shortcomings of the Act will be corrected. Any proposed new system ought to be judged on the extent to which it will enable us to hang on to our gains and free ourselves of the failings.
