§ The Under-Secretary of State for Scotland (Mrs. Judith Hart)
None in Clydebank; 56 in Kirkintilloch, all of whom are beginners in the primary department of one school. The authority is seeking additional staff required to bring part-time education to an end.
§ Mr. Bence
My information is that in the Burgh of Clydebank a considerable number of primary school children are receiving only part-time education, and as we had under the previous Administration very savage cuts in our school building programme, would my hon. Friend take emergency steps to see that by prefabrication we can get accommodation so that these children may have full-time education?
§ Mrs. Hart
I understand that at the beginning of the session there was one class of beginners at Clydebank having part-time education. I think the difficulty is largely shortage of staff rather than 1522 shortage of accommodation. We are looking very closely at all the means we can take to increase staff.
