§ MR. BLACK
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, under the scheme of the Education Bill, the consent of the local education authority will be required to the dismissal of a teacher on grounds determined by the Board of Education not to be connected with the giving of religious instruction, even although such dismissal may previously have been ordered or confirmed by a bishop.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
In the case put the consent of the local authority would be required. I may observe that the hypothesis to which the hon. Member calls my attention presents a case which is, I think, almost impossible, and which, at any rate, could hardly ever arise.
