HC Deb 14 March 1962 vol 655 cc155-6W
24. Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the considerable number of unfilled vacancies among occupational therapy staff; and what steps he intends to take to ensure that these vacancies are filled and that further wastage is considerably reduced

Mr. Maclay

An additional training school is to be opened in Glasgow in September of this year. Much of the wastage of trained people results from marriage; and we are trying to encourage more married women to return to this work, part-time if necessary.
