Blunkett's excuse is the real limit

16th March 2001 at 00:00
SO Blunkett thinks a limit on teachers' working hours would be difficult and cumbersome?

These words describe my job as a primary teacher well. Has he considered how dificult his job will be if too many teachers quit because of workload and hours?
