To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science, pursuant to his reply to the honourable Member for Truro of 21 May, Official Report, column 47, what number and proportion of the practising teachers listed as members of National Curriculum Council committees are head teachers; what information is available to him regarding the current managerial and teaching responsibilities of such head teachers; and if he will make a statement.

The number of head teachers and the proportion they make up of the practising teachers listed as members of the National Curriculum Council (NCC) committees are set out in the table. My right hon. Friend does not have available to him any information about the current managerial and teaching responsibilities of these head teachers. The NCC is solely responsible for determining the membership of its committees.
