§ Mr. Goronwy Roberts
asked the Minister of Education whether she will give 439W the number of applicants from Wales for admission to emergency teachers' training centres, the number so far selected, respectively, and the approximate date of the opening of the first of these centres in Wales.
§ Miss Wilkinson
I regret that I am unable to state the total number of applications for the emergency teacher training scheme received from Wales. Up to 4th October, 1945, 805 applicants had been recorded as requiring to be interviewed by Interviewing Boards in Wales. Of these, 288 had been accepted after interview, 303 had been rejected after interview or on medical grounds, 22 had withdrawn and 192 were under consideration or awaiting interview. The first emergency training college in Wales is expected to be opened in the early part of 1946.
