HC Deb 07 July 1960 vol 626 c54W
61. Mrs. White

asked the Minister of Education how many mature students have applied for shortened teacher training courses starting next session; and how many have been accepted.

Sir D. Eccles

The number of applications for courses of this kind is not readily available but I am glad to say that over 1,000 candidates have already been accepted for shortened courses of general training.
