§ Mr. Wilmot
asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in the scheme for post-war educational facilities and training, consideration has been given to the eligibility of those women wardens, working at present with children of two to five years of age in war-time nurseries, who desire to be included in the scheme, so that, after suitable training, they may act as qualified nursery school teachers in the schools foreshadowed in the new educational proposals?
§ Mr. Butler
I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a leaflet from Section 3 of which he will see that the scheme for post-war educational facilities and training is intended primarily for persons in certain specified categories. Other persons, however, who have been engaged on other work of national importance will not be excluded and consideration will be given to applications from suitable women who have served as wardens of war-time nurseries.
