§ CAPTAIN SINCLAIR (Forfar)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate if he will be good enough to state the comparative frequency of changes in the teaching staff in the school board schools and the non-public State-aided schools in Scotland respectively, as shown by the annual returns in Form IX. for the last five years?
§ *THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. GRAHAM MURRAY, Buteshire)
I am afraid I cannot answer the Hon. Member's Question. To endeavour to obtain the information desired would entail enormous labour, the examination of from 16,000 to 17,000 documents; nor could it be obtained in such a form as to make an accurate comparison possible.
