§ Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many teachers who have taken early retirement are now re-employed in pan-time or temporary teaching posts.
§ Mr. Dunn
Figures have been collected only since 1 April this year and only in respect of teachers who re-enter pensionable service. Since April, 40 teachers who had retired prematurely have obtained re-employment on a full-time basis; and 164 on a part-time basis. In 1982–83 some 9,500 teachers retired early on premature retirement terms.
