§ 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 198W 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.
