Teachers admitted to the register are employed in universities, elementary and secondary schools and technical institutes. Teachers engaged in private practice are admitted under conditions approved by the Council. I am informed that the number of teachers admitted up to 31st May last was 97,474.The conditions of registration are set out in a statement, a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend together with the relevant Order in Council.
