HC Deb 19 February 1958 vol 582 c159W
Mr. Malcolm MacPherson

asked the Minister of Education what steps he takes to assist in the recruitment of teachers from the United Kingdom for posts in the Colonies and Trust Territories.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

I am very anxious to stimulate interest in teaching overseas and an appreciation of its value, and for this reason have set up in my Department a unit to assist the Colonial Office and other bodies in recruiting teachers for key posts overseas. This unit advises inquirers, facilitates contacts between recruiting bodies and education authorities, and helps in placing teachers who return after service abroad.
