HC Deb 05 May 1960 vol 622 c95W
64. Mr. Joseph Slater

asked the Minister of Education how many places will be available in teachers' training colleges in Durham in 1960 and 1961; and what are the prospects for a new teachers' training college in view of the decision to close Wynyard Hall which has served a useful purpose in catering for two year students.

Sir D. Eccles

In each of the two coming academic years about 900 students are likely to enter training colleges in the Durham Area Training Organisation. The places to be given up at Wynyard Hall are being more than made good.
