HC Deb 21 June 1966 vol 730 cc55-6W
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; 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.
