HC Deb 23 March 1962 vol 656 c77W
Mr. Ede

asked the Minister of Education which training colleges for teachers normally admit only those applicants who give the college as their first choice.

Sir D. Eccles

So far as I am aware no college follows this practice as a matter of policy and I understand from the Central Register and Clearing House that on 20th January 42 colleges had filled their places for 1962–63 with students who had named them as one of the three choices which candidates are asked to give in their first application.
