To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what assessment he has made of the current situation with regard to the supply of teachers. 
§ Ms Estelle Morris

The Government's response to the first report of the Education Select Committee on teacher recruitment, which was published on 29 January, sets out the action we are taking on this issue.
