52. Mr. R. Harris

asked the Minister of Education the number of men applying unsuccessfully for places in men's teachers training colleges, and the number of women applying unsuccessfully for places in women's teachers training colleges, during the year ended 31st December, 1955.

This information is not available. There was a much bigger increase in the number of applicants, and 250 more students, nearly all women, were admitted to training colleges in 1955 than in the previous year.
