§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he hopes to issue his forthcoming memorandum on Scottish Further Education for the guidance of local authorities; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ross:
I assume my hon. Friend has in mind the Rodger Committee's Report "Conditions of Service of Teachers in further Education in Scotland". This is a complex matter and further consultation with the interests concerned will be necessary before I issue a memorandum to education authorities on those aspects of the Report in which I have a direct interest.
