HC Deb 24 February 1977 vol 926 c667W
Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will invite the Technician Education Council to reconsider its proposals to discontinue the Ordinary National Certificate in Engineering; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Oakes

The Technician Education Council is an independent body charged

Lecturers and Teachers All other staff
Full-time Part-time Full-time Part-time
1966 350 127 154 269
1976 528 146* 223 494*
* Some change in coverage compared with 1966.
I regret that the numbers of administrative staff are not separately recorded. It is estimated that they form only a small proportion of "all other staff" which consists mainly of operational staff such as domestic staff and groundsmen.
