§ Mr. MacGregor
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list separately the total amount paid in 1974–75, or at the latest available date, for wages, salaries, pensions and national insurance contributions, etc., for teachers in primary and secondary schools in England and Wales, for all other ancillary staff in these schools and for all employees in his own Department.
§ Mr. Mulley
In the financial year 1974–75 the cost of teachers' salaries in primary and secondary schools in England and Wales was £1,600 million and that of salaries and wages of "non-teaching" staff in the same institutions was £230 million.
Staff costs of my Department were £12 million.
