HC Deb 08 November 1962 vol 666 cc93-4W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he proposes to alter the duration of the period for the training of teachers before the report of the Robbins Committee is published.

Mr. Noble

With the aim of getting teachers into the schools more quickly, I have asked the Scottish training authorities for their views on a more intensive use of the colleges which would result in courses being completed within a shorter period but without reduction in content. I cannot say whether this idea will be pursued until I have received and considered the views of the training authorities.
