Mr. Hepburn

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many(a) primary and (b) secondary school teachers were working in South Tyneside local education authorities on 1 May; and what are the projected figures for 1 May 2002. [22665]

Mr. Timms

The information is not available for the dates requested. The full-time equivalent numbers of regular teachers in maintained nursery, primary and secondary schools in the South Tyneside local education authority in January 2001 were as follows:

Nursery and primary 675
Secondary 655

My Department does not project teacher numbers for individual local authorities.
