HC Deb 21 April 1891 vol 352 c1027
MR. SCHWANN (Manchester, N.)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether at a National day school the rector of the parish has the sole right and power to appoint teachers, assistant pupil teachers, school cleaners, and other officials, or whether that right is vested in the whole body of managers, of whom he is one?


If the management of a school is regulated by a deed, the right to appoint teachers devolves on those who are therein described as managers, but in the absence of any such instrument, the right is, I believe, generally exercised by a Committee acting on behalf of the subscribers. The Department, however, have no power to determine in whom such rights reside.
