47. Mr. Hornby

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what further steps he is taking to increase the supply of graduate science and mathematics teachers in the schools.

Miss Bacon

Friend the Member for West Lothian (Mr. Dalyell) on 13th June last, my Department is collaborating with university appointments boards and faculties of science in arranging a series of discussions with students about current developments and prospects in science and mathematics teaching.—[Vol. 766, c.58.]
