§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many teachers retired from the local education authorities in Wales in 1989; and how many of them took early retirement.
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
A total of 940 full-time teachers in maintained nursery, primary, and secondary schools in Wales retired between 1 April 1988 and 31 March 1989. Of these, 706 were below the age of 60. It is not possible without undue cost to determine the exact number that took early retirement.
