HC Deb 30 March 1950 vol 473 cc547-8
26. Commander Maitland

asked the Minister of Education whether he is aware that 75 qualified male teachers at Sefton Park Training College, Liverpool, out of 180, are unable to get posts; and, in view of the need for teachers, what action he proposes to take to make the best use of these men.

Mr. Tomlinson

I am aware that 61 of these men have still not obtained posts. I have urged local education authorities in the Merseyside area to do all they can to absorb as many as possible of the Sefton Park Emergency Training College men. Steps have also been taken to ensure that the men are fully informed about the availability of posts in the country as a whole.
