asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what estimate he has made of the number of redundancies occurring as a result of the cutback in teacher training amongst teaching, administrative and other staff.

It is not possible to make a reliable estimate. The contraction of teacher training will be spread over a period of years and the number of redundancies will depend upon a variety of factors including the incidence of normal retirements, how far existing staff may be employed on the new work outside teacher training which many colleges will be developing and the extent to which staff may transfer to posts in other parts of the education service.
