§ Sir H. NIELD
asked the President of the Board of Education whether, before putting into operation and enforcing the proposed economies suggested by the Geddes Committee, as modified by the Cabinet, in relation to the cost of education, he will consider the desirability of appointing a Select Committee before whom the teachers' views may be placed, and who may report to Parliament; and whether, if, in view of the serious financial position of the country, it is considered necessary to put these recommendations into effect without delay, he will give an undertaking that the position will be reviewed at the earliest possible opportunity?
§ Mr. FISHER
As regards the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal on 27th March to the hon. Member for Pontypool (Mr. T. Griffiths). As regards the last part of the question, the hon. Member may certainly assume that the position will be reviewed if the financial position of the country improves.
