HC Deb 07 November 1973 vol 863 cc184-5W
Mr. Marks

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will list in the OFFICIAL REPORT the percentage of salary paid as superannuation contributions by teachers and obtain and publish comparable figures for National Health Service workers and other local and national Government employees, indicating the normal age of retirement.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The information is as follows:

provide in the instruments of government of their secondary schools for parental representation on governing bodies.

Mrs. Thatcher

No. The constitution of governing bodies of county schools is a matter best left to the discretion of local education authorities, which are in fact increasingly arranging such representation.
