HC Deb 10 February 1977 vol 925 c755W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, of the British teachers (a) taking part in exchanges organised by the Central Bureau for Educational Visits and Exchanges and the League for the Exchange of Commonwealth Teachers, (b) currently in posts in the European schools and (c) overseas, recruited by the British Council, how many are concerned wholly or in part with the teaching of physical education.

Miss Margaret Jackson

The figures for teachers in primary and secondary schools are (a) 24, (b) 2, and (c) 5. In addition, some others in these groups also teach physical education as part of their general duties, but it is not known how many. The same applies to the British teachers recruited to teach abroad by the Ministry of Overseas Development, as part of the British Aid Programme, of whom there were 360 primary teachers and 2,295 secondary teachers in 1975.
