40. Mr. MANDER

asked the President of the Board of Education what action it is proposed to take in connection with the final report of the Committee on Education for Salesmanship?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Sir Donald Maclean)

I attach great importance to the recommendations of this valuable and comprehensive report which are addressed not only to those responsible for the conduct of the schools of the country, but also to employers and parents. I am now actively considering how best I can cooperate with the other interests con- cerned in making these recommendations more widely known, and what steps can he taken at the present time to give effect to those recommendations which directly concern my Department. I venture respectfully to draw the special attention of hon. Members to this report which, in my opinion, has a most important bearing on the future of trade and industry in this country.
