The Board have encouraged the interchange of teachers between this country and the Dominions. They cooperate with the Colonial Office in recruiting teachers for the Colonies, and are represented on the Advisory Committee on Education in the Colonies. My hon. Friend will recollect that from time to time Imperial Education Conferences have been convened by the Board.

Could not very much more be done about the interchange of teachers between the different parts of the Empire?

I sincerely hope that as circumstances improve this will be one of the developments that we shall foster.
