§ Mr. David Young
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what will be the output of newly-trained teachers in the current year; and how many vacancies there are in primary and secondary schools.
§ Dr. Boyson
My Department is compiling an estimate of this year's output of newly trained teachers and I shall write to the hon. Member as soon as the information is available. Information about the number of vacancies in primary and secondary schools is not available centrally; staffing policy is a matter for individual schools and local authorities.
