HC Deb 27 June 1968 vol 767 cc105-6W
41. Mr. Ford

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will now increase the quota of teachers in those areas where there has been a rise in the number of immigrant children.

Miss Bacon

I have already done so. 1,921 teachers have so far been added to the quotas of local education authorities with substantial numbers of immigrant children. The corresponding figure in the previous quota was 822. I am still prepared to consider requests for additions to quota for this purpose.
