§ Mr. RAWLINSON
asked the President of the Board of Education whether, having regard to the exceptional circumstances connected with the school at Little-port, in the Isle of Ely, and the frequent changes of headmasters which have recently occurred, he would consent to allow the head inspector of the district to visit the school and make a special report to him as to the advisability of retaining the present headmaster?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I am aware of the circumstances of this case, and I do not consider that it calls for exceptional treatment. The requirements of the Code, which it is suggested should be waived, are purely impersonal, and as the question does not turn upon the qualifications of the particular teacher I do not think that anything would be gained by having a special report from the Divisional Inspector.
