HC Deb 21 February 1972 vol 831 c232W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many teachers teaching classical languages and modern languages, respectively, are employed in maintained secondary schools.

Mr. van Straubenzee

The Department does not collect regular statistics in this form. A survey in 1965 indicated the following approximate numbers engaged, but not necessarily for all their time, on teaching these subjects:

Full-time teachers Part-time teachers
Classics 2,900 250
Modern foreign languages 11,800 1,800
