HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 c11W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what guidance the Scottish Education Department has issued about teacher-pupil ratio in the special school sector.

Mr. McElhone

A consultative memorandum circulated in October 1973 set out proposed standards for teacher-pupil ratios for special schools and classes. These have been generally accepted by education authorities and are in operation in the majority of special schools.
