asked the Minister of Labour how many secondary and elementary teachers, respectively, had been released from the Forces under Class B at the latest date for which figures are available.

The total number of school teachers released in Class B by the end of September was 1,046. I regret that separate figures for secondary and elementary teachers are not readily available.

Is not that total deplorably small, in view of the number of teachers in other classes of schools; and will the right hon. Gentleman do everything he can to accelerate the matter?

We are doing what we can within the scheme to expedite the release of all, but not to give special preferences to one against the other.
