HC Deb 16 October 1968 vol 770 c143W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state his proposals resulting from his consideration of the Roberts Committee's recommendation of the problems of shortage of teachers in Scotland.

Mr. Ross

I am sending my hon. and learned Friend a copy of the Circular I sent to education authorities last March introducing a scheme for the payment of a salary addition of £100 per annum to teachers in schools of most severe teacher shortage, and recommending that education authorities should meet the travelling expenses of teachers in such schools.
