asked the Secretary of State for Scotland at the latest survey date, what was the pupil-to-teacher ratio of schools in Scotland; and if he will give separate figures for (a) nursery schools, (b) primary schools and (c) secondary schools.

For information about pupil-teacher ratios in education authority primary and secondary schools at September 1981 I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to him on 23 February 1982. At September 1980, the pupil-teacher ratio in education authority nursery schools was 25.3:1 and the overall pupil-staff ratio was 6.5:1. Comparable information about the nursery school position at September 1981 is not yet available. —[Vol. 18, c.373].
