asked the Minister of Education whether she will take steps to withdraw the Regulation which bans ministers of religion from qualifying as teachers in elementary and secondary schools.

I understand that the Regulation in question is likely to be debated when the Prayer against the Primary and Secondary Schools (Grant Conditions) Regulations, 1945, which appears on the Order Paper in the name of the hon. Gentleman the Member for the Combined English Universities (Mr. Lindsay) and others, comes before the House. In these circumstances I think that it would be proper that I should defer expressing any views on the matter until that stage is reached.
