HC Deb 30 March 1950 vol 473 cc540-1
11. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Education how many British teachers were exchanged with American teachers in 1949; and how many it is proposed to exchange in 1950.

Mr. Tomlinson

Ninety-seven exchanges were arranged for the year 1949–50; the corresponding number in 1950–51 will be 74.

Mr. Hollis

Can the Minister answer the second part of my Question, which asks for the reason for the reduction?

Mr. Tomlinson

The reason is not asked for in the Question, but it is that the cost is greater.
