asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in the plans which the Government is making for the staffing of national education after the war, he will specially consider the claims of, and the valuable experience of, young men and women who have served in the Armed Forces or the women's auxiliaries in preference to others who will not have the advantage of having rendered this valuable service?

I am making arrangements which will bring the claims of the education service to the attention of men and women in the Armed Forces and the Women's Auxiliary Services, and provide special training for those who wish to become teachers. I doubt whether any question of preference will arise since there will probably be employment for all the teachers whose services can be secured.
