HC Deb 26 January 1987 vol 109 c11W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the latest figure for the total number of people employed as teachers of the deaf; if he will analyse what proportion of these admitted into training courses for teaching the deaf come from (a) certified teachers with experience in teaching, (b) qualified teachers direct from college or university, (c) non-certified graduates, (d) undergraduates and (e) other; what effect he estimates the implementation of the White Paper, "Better Schools", would have on the numbers of teachers of the deaf being trained; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dunn

I shall reply as soon as possible.
