HC Deb 13 July 1949 vol 467 cc27-8W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Education what is the composition of the new Advisory Council on the Training and Supply of Teachers; and to what extent it is designed to supersede the advice on this subject given by the McNair Committee in 1944.

Mr. Tomlinson

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave the hon. Member for West Wolverhampton (Mr. H. D. Hughes) on 2nd June. This Council has been set up to give continuing advice in the light of changing circumstances, whereas the McNair Committee was asked to make a single report based on information available at the time when it was sitting.
