Mr. Peter Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will give the current pupil-teacher ratio in schools in East Belfast and the comparable figure for 1981; how this compares with the overall figure for Belfast; and what is the overall figure for each area board.

Mr. Scott

The pupil-teacher ratio for schools in East Belfast for the 1980–81 school year is 17.8: comparable figures for each education and library board area are as follows:

Pupil-teacher ratio
Belfast 17.1
Western 19.5
North-Eastern 19.1
South-Eastern 19.6
Southern 19.8

Corresponding figures for the 1981–82 school year are not yet available.
