HC Deb 29 November 1945 vol 416 cc1748-9W
Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Education if she will consider increasing the number of schoolteachers exchanged between this country and the U.S.A.; and will she include an adequate number from and to the elementary schools.

Miss Wilkinson

A committee has been formed under the auspices of the English Speaking Union to conduct the interchange of teachers with the U.S.A. This committee, in whose work my Ministry is actively interested, is making preparations for a great increase in the number of exchanges compared with the pre-war numbers, and I hope that all types of school will be adequately represented.
