§ CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington, W.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether, in the event of the Education Bill becoming law, the officers of those School Attendance Committees which are to be substituted by the Education Authority will be retained by the Education Authority; and, if not, whether it is intended to compensate those officers whose services may be dispensed with.
§ MR. J. H. YOXALL (Nottingham, W.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether the omission from the Education Bill of a clause providing for compensation to officers of School Boards or School Attendance Committees, whose due interests may be injuriously affected under the legislation proposed, is inadvertent; and, if not, what is the reason for departing from precedent in similar cases, such as those provided for in the Local Government Acts of 1888 and 1894.
§ Mr. L. ATHERLEY-JONES (Durham, N. W.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether the omission of a clause in the Education Bill, providing for compensation to any officer who may be injuriously affected by the Bill, was 203 inadvertent or intentional; and, if the latter, what reason is there for departing from the precedent of similar provisions included in the Local Government Acts of 1888 and 1894?
§ SIR J. GORST
This question is under consideration, and the Committee of Council are in correspondence with the Treasury upon it.
