HC Deb 30 October 1985 vol 84 cc483-4W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what information he has as to which local authorities offer inducements to teachers to attend courses during holidays by paying expenses.

Sir Keith Joseph

It is common practice for local authorities to provide some reimbursement to teachers of costs incurred as a result of attendance at in-service training courses, as resources allow. The Department does not collect information on the extent of this practice.
