HC Deb 08 July 1958 vol 591 c182
19. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland on what date he intends to bring the Teachers (Training Authorities) (Scotland) Regulations, 1958, into effect; and on what date he proposes to lay them before Parliament.

Mr. Maclay

I hope to lay the Regulations before Parliament by the end of August, and I propose that the provisions bringing the new training authorities into existence should come into operation at the beginning of November. Thereafter, the process of electing and appointing their members would take about three months. The rest of the Regulations would come into operation on a date not later than 1st April, 1959, to be arranged between the old bodies and the new.
