asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what information he has about the extent to which the contracts of employment for teachers in universities, polytechnics, technical colleges and colleges of education permit direct contemporary employment by other bodies and organisations, other than those directly related to academic activities; and if any of these institutions publish a register of such outside employment.

I have no detailed information, but in general a teacher is required to fulfil the duties that his teaching employment entails, but may take other employment provided such employment does not interfere with the due performance of those duties. I have no information about publication of registers of outside employment.
