§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if, in connection with her proposed study of the rate of staff turnover in schools, she will incorporate an inquiry into the proportion of staff in schools who are on a temporary or supply basis.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The inquiry forms have already been despatched. The inquiry relates to the turnover of all full-time teachers during the current school year. Its scope has been limited in order to produce information quickly.
