§ Colonel DAY
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware of the representations made at the lost conference of the London Teachers' Association calling attention to the diffi- 656W culty in securing an adequate supply of efficient teachers, particularly in boys' schools in the poorer districts of London; and what steps are being taken with a view to attracting young teachers to the poorer districts of London?
§ Lord E. PERCY
I am aware of the difficulty to which the hon. and gallant Members refers. Arrangements are being made for a conference between officers of my Department and the County Council to discuss practical methods of meeting it.
