HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 cc323-4W
24. Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she has exact information as to the numerical strength of each trade union representing the teaching profession.

Mrs. Thatcher

No, and I have no powers to obtain it. One union, the National Association of Schoolmasters, has provided my Department with details of its paid-up membership serving in the schools.
