§ Sir W. ALLEN
asked the President of the Board of Education how many teachers there are under the educational authorities in Great Britain: and how many have retired on pension?
§ Mr. TREVELYAN
For the year ended the 31st March, 1922, the latest year for which full figures are available, the number of teachers in full-time service in schools or educational institutions in England and Wales, for which local education authorities are financially responsible in various degrees, may be taken at about 208,460. A few of these may be in schools for Winch the responsibility of local education authorities is not complete. The number of teachers living on the 31st March, 1922, who had retired on pension was 12,579. For corresponding figures for Scotland I must refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend the Secretary for Scotland.
