asked the Minister of Education how many training centres for ex-Service men and women are at present in operation under the Further Education and Training Scheme; and whether, in view of the large number of ex-Service personnel waiting for training, steps are being taken to establish more training centres.

Awards under this Scheme made by my Department are tenable not at training centres, but at universities, technical colleges and similar institutions and I am not aware of any large number awaiting training. If the hon. and gallant Member will send me further information, I will consider the matter.


asked the Minister of Education whether the waiting period for applicants accepted for the Emergency Training Scheme for Teachers runs from the date of application by the individual concerned or some other date; and whether the same rule obtains for applicants from the Armed Forces who have not been released at the date of application.

The waiting period for candidates who apply while still in the Forces starts from the date of Class A release. For other candidates it starts from date of application.
