asked the Minister of Education (1) if he will give the names of the local education authorities which employed the 2,870 temporary teachers and the 1,127 occasional unqualified teachers who were in teaching service in maintained schools on 31st March last; and how many in each category the authorities employed;(2) which local education authorities have decided not to appoint temporary teachers.

The figures for March, 1961, collected from the Teachers' Service Books have not yet been analysed by authorities, but a later return made in October, 1961, is now available, and is as follows. This shows that 28 local education authorities were not employing temporary teachers, though 12 of these had been employing such teachers during the previous 12 months.
