HC Deb 23 March 1967 vol 743 c349W
Mr. Buchanan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the shortage of teachers in Glasgow and in an endeavour to eliminate part-time education in many primary schools, he will seek the aid of the teachers' organisations in the working of a system of voluntary overtime and, in order to ease the strain on teaching staffs, the employment of schools' assistants.

Mr. Ross

This is a matter primarily for the education authority. I know that it is already adopting measures of the kind suggested and will extend them where it can.
