HC Deb 19 December 1963 vol 686 c240W
25. Mr. Owen

asked the Minister of Education, in view of the work of the National Extension College, Cambridge, and of the response from women graduates who wish to take up teaching, whether he will develop this experiment so as to reduce the teacher stortage; and whether he will make a statement.

Sir E. Boyle

While full professional training is the ideal, I welcome any measures well designed to reinforce the courses that are already being provided to prepare women graduates for entry or return to teaching. I shall watch this experiment with interest.
