§ Mr. Thorne
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether he intends to close the Mary Ward College of Education, Keyworth, Nottingham ; and. if so, why.
§ Mr. Prentice
The Governors of the Mary Ward College of Education and the Catholic Education Council agreed to my proposal that the college should cease to admit students to initial teacher training under the arrangements described in my Department's Circular No. 7/73. The last intake of such students was accepted in September 1974.
