HC Deb 19 November 1965 vol 720 c116W
Mr. Dempsey

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many students he estimates will leave colleges of education in Scotland at the next leaving date; and how this number compares with the estimated number of vacancies.

Mr. Ross

Some 3,500 students are likely to complete their courses of training at the Scottish colleges of education by the end of the current session. The number of vacancies cannot be estimated at this stage but the need for teachers will still be much in excess of the supply.
