§ MR. SPENCER BALFOUR (Burnley)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether those assistant teachers who have hitherto satisfied the requirements of Article 50 of the present Code, will be recognised as assistant teachers under Article 50 of the New Code?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir W. HART DYKE,) Kent, Dartford
Article 50 of the New Code is not intended to affect the position of assistant teachers who have been recognised as such under previous Codes.
§ MR. JOHN KELLY (Camberwell, N.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether it is intended by Article 12 of the new Education Code to empower School Board authorities to erect special schools or adapt existing ones for the purposes of scientific and technical instruction; and whether, if so, it is intended that provision in the same direction should be made for the scholars attending voluntary schools?
§ SIR W. HART DYKE
One of the objects of Article 12 of the New Code is to enable the managers of schools, both Board and voluntary, to make arrangements for the central instruction of scholars in certain special subjects with a view to greater economy and efficiency. My hon. Friend will find schemes of this nature more clearly defined in Article 90.
