HC Deb 02 May 1895 vol 33 c282
SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether it is the intention of the Education Department, now that it has obtained control of the elementary education of deaf and dumb children, to continue to recognise as sufficient the certificates granted previously to the passing of the recent Act by the College of Teachers of the Deaf and Dumb to the existing teachers, numbering about 180, without requiring them to obtain the elementary grant certificate?


Teachers of certified schools for the deaf and dumb are not required, as a condition of receiving grants, to hold the ordinary certificate of the Department, and there is no intention of imposing such a requirement.
