HC Deb 23 December 1964 vol 704 c308W
Sir M. Galpern

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the Advisory Council on Education and the Council for the Training of Teachers will be disbanded on the setting up of a General Teaching Council for Scotland.

Mr. Ross

In accordance with the Wheatley Committee's recommendation, it is intended that the Scottish Council for the Training of Teachers should go out of existence once a General Teaching Council is fully established. The Bill now before Parliament does not, however, affect the provisions in the Education (Scotland) Act, 1962, bearing on the Advisory Council on Education.
