asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science which colleges of education were closed down in the academic year 1974–75 and how many teacher-training places were lost through each of these closures; and which colleges of education are likely to cease fulfilling their teacher-training purpose during the next three academic years and how many places will be lost through each of these closures.
It has so far been decided that the following five colleges should cease to admit students to initial teacher training as from the dates shown:
- Alnwick, Northumberland (September 1975).
- Mary Ward, Nottinghamshire (September 1975).
- Radbrook, Salop (September 1975).
- Saffron Walden, Essex (September 1975).
