§ Mr. MacArthur
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many additional married women teachers have been employed as a result of the recent publicity campaign to attract them back to teaching; and whether he is satisfied with the results.
§ Mr. Maclay
Two hundred and eleven additional married women teachers entered employment in education authorities' schools in Scotland between the beginning of February—when the campaign started—and the end of April. I do not of course claim that all of these were recruited directly as a result of the publicity campaign, but this is a substantial number and I think the result of the campaign can be described so far as satisfactory.
