HC Deb 19 March 1970 vol 798 cc188-9W
Mrs. Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the survey he conducted at the end of January, 1970, into staffing of secondary schools in Scotland.

Mr. Ross

The survey was designed to provide information about the organisation and staffing of secondary schools, mainly with a view to determining more objective staffing standards and to enabling more accurate estimates to be made of staffing requirements and shortages in particular subjects.
