asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many day school teachers were dismissed in each of the last three years; and how many of them had their registrations withdrawn by the General Teaching Council.

The numbers of education authority teachers dismissed from primary and secondary schools over the last three years are as follows:

1976–7722
1977–7822
1978–795
I am informed by the General Teaching Council that over the same period it withdrew registration of 34 teachers, but it is not known how many of these are included in the above figures. If my hon. Friend requires further information, he may wish to approach the Council direct.
