asked the Minister of Education if she is aware of dissatisfaction amongst Services personnel shortly due for release who have applied for interviews under the Emergency Training of Teachers Scheme, regarding the delay in granting such interviews; and if she will take steps to ensure that all such interviews are completed and applications under the scheme decided upon before actual dates of release from the Services.

I am aware that it has not so far been possible to arrange these interviews as rapidly as either the candidates or I should like. Steps have been taken which will secure a considerable improvement, but I cannot give an undertaking that all Service candidates will be interviewed before their release.
