§ Mr. David Price
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) whether he has approved a programme of current and capital expenditure for the Natural Environment Research Council up to 1970; and when he will publish it; 56W devised for fixing the teacher quota allocation to local education authorities works fairly and equitably for all authorities; and what proposals he has to alter it.
§ Mr. Redhead
My right hon. Friend does not at present propose to alter the formula by which each authority's share of the available force of full-time qualified teachers is allocated, since he is satisfied that the formula works equitably.
