§ 83. Mr. Sproat
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many certificated 137W teachers in Scotland, at the latest convenient date for which figures are available, have been dismissed or refused employment as a result of their refusal to register with the General Teaching Council.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
Up to 31st March, 1970 the number of teachers who had been dismissed was 24. As regards the second part of the Question, it is for the education authority to decide whether to engage unregistered persons for teaching posts for which they are eligible.
