HC Deb 10 April 1946 vol 421 cc328-9W
Mr. Haydn Davies

asked the Minister of Education how many emergency training colleges have been opened to date and how many are likely to be opened in 1946, giving the number of students accommodated or to be accommodated in each case and whether for men or for women.

Miss Wilkinson:

Fifteen Emergency Training Colleges have so far been opened with 1,634 men and 1,196 women students. Buildings for 20 more have been secured and are in various stages of conversion. Of these, 17 will accommodate 3,557 men and 949 women; the accommodation of the other three is not yet settled. Further buildings are being secured on which it is hoped to complete the work of conversion before the end of 1946.
