HC Deb 08 May 1968 vol 764 cc89-90W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many male and female qualified applicants for places in teacher training colleges for the physical education course in 1966–67 and 1967–68; how many were accepted; and how many are currently in teacher training on a physical education course.

Mr. Ross

The numbers accepted for training were:

1966–67 1967–68
Men 71 76
Women 159 159
The numbers of qualified applicants are not available because many apply before they obtain academic qualifications, some so qualified withdraw and some are rejected as physically or in other respects unsuitable. 184 men and 363 women are currently in training.
