HC Deb 06 December 1967 vol 755 c308W
Mr. Hunter

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his estimate of the number of teachers who will retire in Scotland in the years 1968, 1969 and 1970, showing the figures for primary and secondary schools, respectively.

Mr. Ross

About 1,020 in each of the three financial years beginning 1968–69. It is not possible to apportion the figures between primary and secondary schools, but the estimates allow for more than twice as many women as men teachers retiring over the three-year period.
