HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 cc640-1W
Mr. James Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many teachers are unemployed in Scotland; how many are unemployed in Strathclyde; and what are their job prospects.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

On 12 June 1980, the latest date for which this information is available, 971 primary and secondary teachers were registered as unemployed in Scotland, 416 of them in Strathclyde. Job prospects for unemployed teachers will depend on the recruitment policies adopted by education authorities in the 1980–81 session.
