HC Deb 16 December 1968 vol 775 c305W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what comparative research studies have been made to determine an optimum size for teacher training colleges as regards teaching facilities, size of staff and number of students.

Mr. Edward Short

Preliminary studies have been made of the relationship between size of colleges of education and the numbers of main courses of study offered. I hope to initiate further and more detailed studies in this field.
