HC Deb 18 May 1943 vol 389 c942W
Mr. Harvey

asked the President of the Board of Education how many uncertificated teachers and how many supplementary teachers are now employed in public elementary schools; and how does the percentage of these teachers compare with the figures for 1918?

Mr. Butler

I regret that the information required is not available, since under war conditions the collection of statistics has been reduced to a minimum. I have no evidence, however, to suggest that the percentage of uncertificated and supplementary teachers in relation to certificated teachers has materially increased.
