§ 40. Mr. Pardoe
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps to ensure that staffing ratios are the same for primary and secondary education.
§ Mr. Edward Short
I do not fix staffing ratios for individual schools, but in my recent circular, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy, I make it clear that I look to school authorities to bring the standard in primary schools closer to that in the lower forms of secondary schools.
