HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc371-2W
Mr. Boyden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many applicants for training colleges classified by the clearing house as acceptable or borderline have not yet been able to find places.

Mr. Hogg

There are at the moment in the training college Clearing House pool 277 unplaced candidates graded acceptable and 2,341 borderline, and the papers of a further 1,185 candidates whose acceptability is not yet known, are with colleges. The recruitment process is, of course, by no means yet complete.
