§ MR. ERNEST GRAY (West Ham, N.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether the Education Bill will impose any disqualification upon the master of a Board School who is a member of a county governing body, under the Welsh Intermediate Education Act, and also chairman of the urban district council for the place in which the school is situate; and, whether it will be still possible for such school teacher to continue to fill these offices?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
The Committee of Council do not consider that the position of teachers in these respects will be affected by the Bill.
§ SIR GEORGE TREVELYAN (Glasgow, Bridgeton)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether, under 77 Clause 15, Sub-section (3), of the Education Bill now before the House, the Education Department could make an order transferring an industrial school from the London School Board to the new educational authority without the consent of the London School Board?
§ SIR J. GORST
The Sub-clause will not affect industrial schools in so far as they are of an elementary character. A transfer of the non-elementary parts of such schools could not, by Sub-clause (4), be effected without the consent of the Secretary of State.
