HC Deb 13 June 2002 vol 386 c1417W
Mr. Brady

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what estimate she has made of(a) the number and (b) the percentage of teachers whose General Teaching Council registration fee has been collected by compulsory deduction by their employer. [60881]

Mr. Miliband

The Secretary of State has made no such estimate. The collection of the registration fee is a matter for the General Teaching Council and I have asked the Chief Executive of the Council to write to the hon. Gentleman with information on the present position with regard to compulsory deductions. A copy of her response will be placed in the Library.
