§ 44. Mr. Willie W. Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps he intends to take to increase the numbers of teachers of physics, chemistry, mathematics and other sciences.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
The consultative document "Action on Teacher Supply in Mathematics, Physics and Technology" set out our proposals for those secondary subjects experiencing the most serious supply difficulties. Some of the measures discussed in the document are relevant to other science provision. We shall continue to monitor the demand for teachers of all subjects and to consider where further action might be necessary.
