HC Deb 28 November 1973 vol 865 cc172-3W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the rate of turnover in teaching staff in understaffed schools and his estimate of its effect on education in Scotland.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Recent information about rates of turnover is not available ; but figures obtained during the 1970 Secondary School Staffing Survey showed no significant difference in turnover rates between designated schools of teacher shortage and other schools.
