35. Mr. Amory
asked the Minister of Education how many graduates have left the teaching profession in 1945, 1946, and 1947.
§ Mr. Hardman
I regret that this information is not available. There was, however, no significant change between March, 1946, and March, 1947, in the number of graduates known to be teaching in grant-aided schools and other educational institutions, the figures being 34,234 and 34,423, respectively.
As there has been a steady loss of graduates into the universities, does the Parliamentary Secretary think that the steps taken to deal with the situation and the remedies are satisfactory?
