HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 cc21-2W
71. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will initiate discussions with the General Teaching Council in order to ensure that teachers of Scottish origin who complete a teacher training course with the assistance of a grant from his Department, and who are qualified to teach in England, are not debarred from teaching in Scotland.

Mr. Ross

In terms of the Teaching Council (Scotland) Act, 1965 exceptional admission to the register of teachers is a matter for the General Teaching Council, and I have no power to intervene.
