HC Deb 24 May 1973 vol 857 cc137-8W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many breakdown pensions have been awarded for the years 1970, 1971 and 1972 to: (1) teachers in colleges of education, (2) teachers in technical colleges and (3) teachers in primary and secondary schools in England and Wales; and if she will express these numbers as a percentage of the appropriate teaching force for each of the three years.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

430, 438 and 455. The figures given in my answer to the hon. Member's Written Question on 4th December last for the two latter years were provisional. These are the definitive ones. It would need disproportionate effort to analyse the figures by type of institution, but overall the number of breakdown pensions awarded represents about 0.125 per cent of the teacher force.
