§ 43. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why he proposes to close the demonstration school of Aberdeen Educational College; and what he proposes to substitute for it.
§ Mr. Hughes
Does the Secretary of State realise that the Principal of Aberdeen University and other distinguished teachers in Aberdeen are against the closing of this demonstration school and that they regard it as wasteful? Will he reconsider the matter and allow the college to continue the good work it has been doing over the years?
§ Mr. Hendry
Is my right hon. Friend aware that a great many people in the north-east of Scotland are grateful to him for the very prompt action he has taken in that part of the world to increase the supply of teachers and they have great confidence in the action he is taking to provide training in teaching practice in other schools in the area?
