HC Deb 17 November 1902 vol 114 c1106
MR. JOSEPH HOWARD (Middlesex, Tottenham)

To ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether, in order to carry out more effectually the Compulsory Clauses of the Education Acts, the Government will assent to the insertion in the Education Bill of a Clause providing that in the ease of attendance officers devoting the whole of their time to the enforcing of such Acts they shall only be liable to dismissal from their office with the sanction and approval of the Board of Education.

(Answered by Sir William Anson.) Such a provision would appear to lie outside the scope of the present Education Bill.
