HC Deb 27 April 1950 vol 474 c134W
140. Mr. Kaberry

asked the Minister of Education what is the number of male teachers in country primary and secondary modern schools, respectively, employed in England and Wales at the most recent convenient dates.

Mr. Tomlinson

Precise figures are hot available, but it is estimated that in January, 1949, there were 20,400 men teaching in county primary schools, and 21,900 in county secondary modern schools in England and Wales.

Mr. Marples

asked the Minister of Education how many probationary qualified teachers after completing their 12 months' training at Sefton Park Training College are still without appointments; and how many have indicated a willingness to accept a position in any district.

Mr. Tomlinson

I am informed that not more than 44 of the 180 men who completed their emergency training course at Sefton Park, Liverpool on 8th March are still without a post. I cannot say how many of them have indicated their willingness to serve in any district.
