HC Deb 13 February 1930 vol 235 c615W

asked the President of the Board of Education what steps he has taken to have additional teachers qualified in time for the raising of the school age next year; and how many additional teachers have recently entered the training colleges?


I invited the training colleges last summer to provide for the admission of an increased number of students, and arrangements are now being made to secure a further extension of their accommodation. On the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave on Thursday last to the hon. Member for South-West Bethnal Green (Mr. Harris), of which I am sending him a copy.
