HC Deb 19 December 1946 vol 431 c432W
96. Lieut.-Colonel Boles

asked the Minister of Education whether she is aware of the difficulty experienced by qualified male teachers of 50 years of age and over in obtaining employment; and whether she is satisfied that the Appointments Board, conducted jointly by the Association of Education Committees and the National Union of Teachers, is making the fullest use of the services of these teachers.

Mr. Hardman

I am aware that some teachers of 50 and over are experiencing difficulty in securing appointments. I am satisfied that the Appointments Board make every effort to secure employment for any such teachers of whom they have particulars.
