HC Deb 18 March 1965 vol 708 cc306-7W
66. Mr. Leadbitter

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many applications have been made for teacher training since the end of July 1964; and how many applicants have been successful in gaining places in colleges of teacher training.

Mr. Prentice

Some 37,000 applicants had registered with the Clearing House by the beginning of this month. It is too early to say how many will eventually be admitted to colleges for the coming academic year.
