HC Deb 11 December 1967 vol 756 cc55-6W
Mr. Hornby

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will state the number of applicants for certi- ficate courses in colleges of education and the number of places available at the beginning of the academic year 1967–68.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

Approximately 36,500 candidates were admitted for certificate or other courses in colleges of education. Details of applicants are expected to be available early in 1968, though it is known that only about 250 acceptable candidates were unplaced.
