HC Deb 13 March 1963 vol 673 c163W
Mr. Hannan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the number of classics teachers in Scottish schools; how many of these are principal teachers; and how many are ranked as principal teachers only because their actual hours of teaching are reckoned at double their length.

Mr. Noble

There are 546 teachers of classics in Scottish education authority schools, of whom 166 are principal teachers. The appointment of 90 of the latter would not be obligatory if the hours of instruction were not reckoned at double their actual length.
