§ 57. Mr. Pitman
asked the Minister of Education what steps he is taking to improve the distribution of teachers.
§ Sir D. Eccles
Following the conference on this subject which I recently held I have now put to the associations of teachers and local authorities some practical suggestions which they are considering. I will make a statement as soon as these consultations have been completed.
The Conference brought out the vital importance of maintaining the total supply of teachers and in particular of recruiting as many home-based teachers as possible in the area of every authority however well placed at present.
