Interviewer. Mr. Carr, do you think in view of the brain drain and the shortage of teachers, could you afford to send another thousand graduates overseas.
Carr. Yes, I'm sure we must take a long term view of this. I don't think Britain cn afford not to send them. Of course in this case they'll be coming back with an experience which will be of value to this country, plus the service they have given will have helped the countries they have been to.
Interview. What sort of people will you be looking for?
Carr. Newly qualified graduates in all sorts of faculties, most of them will go teaching, but an increasing number, I hope, will go on agricultural project; I saw myself, for example, someone, someone in an engineering school; and community development and running field ambulance and a multiplicity of different types of work.
Interview. Now these graduates are not very highly paid-do you think you will get a thousand of them prepared to give up a year's earning capacity.
Carr. I believed so, judging by the numbers who have been applying recently, there is no indication that they are only concerned with the money.
