§ Mr. Cartwright
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received about the case for a general teaching council; what consideration he has given to this proposal; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Rumbold
My right hon. Friend has received no representations recently about the establishment of a general teaching council. Our position has been for some time, and remains, that we are prepared to consider the case for such a body if a specific proposal made is likely to command widespread support from all the interests involved.
