§ 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.
