HC Deb 15 February 1972 vol 831 cc85-6W
Mr. Ellis

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the estimated cost for 3 per cent. of primary and secondary teachers in England and Wales to be undergoing retraining.

Mrs. Thatcher

The cost would depend on a number of assumptions. For the reasons given in my reply to the Questions by the hon. Members for Sheffield, Attercliffe (Mr. Duffy) and Flint, East (Mr. Barry Jones) on 10th February, I shall be able to attempt no more than a broad estimate of the total cost of implementing the recommendations in the James Report.—[Vol. 830. c. 403.]
