§ 54. Mr. RHYS DAVIES
asked the President of the Board of Education approximately the total number of fully trained and/or certificated teachers in England, Scotland and Wales, respectively, who have, during the last five years left colleges and universities, and have failed to secure permanent employment in their own vocation?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
For the last five years an average of nearly 200 students from training colleges in England, and of about 70 from colleges in Wales, have failed to obtain posts within 18 months of leaving; but I have no information as to the number of these who are still without permanent employment. With regard to Scottish teachers, I must refer my hon. Friend to the Secretary of State for Scotland.
