§ Mr. Bernie Grant
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what increase or decrease there has been or is proposed in in-service training by local education authorities in 1989–90, 1990–91 and 1991–92; and what assessment he has made of the amount of in-service training(a) necessary and (b) being delivered relating to the national history curriculum.
§ Mr. Fallon
No figures are collected for the total volume of in-service training undertaken by local education authorities. It is for schools and local education authorities to decide how much training is required by their teachers in respect of any particular subject.
