§ SIR JOSEPH LEESE (Lancashire, Accrington)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education if he is prepared to place upon the Table of the House a minute of the Board giving a right of appeal to teachers in cases of their alleged wrongful dismissal by managers of schools (both Board and Voluntary) which receive grants under the Day School Code.
§ MAJOR RASCH (Essex, S. E.)
I beg also to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he has considered the universally expressed desire of the school teachers that no sentence of dismissal passed upon them shall be valid without the approval of the Board of Education.
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir J. GORST,) Cambridge University
The matter is still under the consideration of the Board of Education, but I hope to be in a position to make a definite statement on the subject before the end of the session.
