HC Deb 11 March 1975 vol 888 cc105-6W
Mr. Bates

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many people entered teaching in primary and secondary schools in the current academic year; how many were graduates and how many were re-entrants into teaching; and what he expects the comparative figures to be for each of the next five years.

Mr. Prentice:

Figures for the current academic year are not yet available since each term varies. I am now considering future policy and it is not yet possible to give estimates for the next five years.
