HC Deb 08 April 1968 vol 762 cc197-8W
Mr. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how m any fewer part-time teachers the Hertfordshire Education Authority is proposing to employ as compared with their plans made before the reduction in the rate of growth of educational expenditure.

Miss Bacon

Hertfordshire Education Authority propose to employ approximately 348 more teachers in 1968–69 than in 1967–68, of whom rather less than half will be part-timers. I understand that a proposal which would have involved employing in total about 520 additional teachers, was not proceeded with.
