asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the planned capacity, in megawatts sent out, of the South of Scotland Electricity Board and the North of Scotland Hydro Board, for January, 1974; and if he will give an estimate of the planned capacity of each of these Boards for January, 1975.
The information is as follows:
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many part-time teachers in terms of full-time teaching posts are employed in Scotland in 1968; and whether he will make approximate comparisons with 1966 and 1967.
1,021 in January, 1967 and 1,371 in January, 1968. This information, which relates to public and grant-aided schools, including nursery and special schools, is not available for 1966
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he hopes to meet representatives of the Educational Institute of Scotland on the future recruitment and training of teachers of technical subjects.
I am considering the Institute's request for a meeting.
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland for what reasons he proposes to divide teachers of technical subjects into teachers of craft and non-craft subjects with separate training for each category.
Under my proposals all teachers of technical subjects would be qualified to teach all the subjects in this group up to the ordinary grade of the Scottish Certificate of Education. Specialisation was contemplated only for teaching to the Higher grade. I am now reviewing my proposals in the light of the comments that I have received.
