§ SIR ROBERT MOWBRAY (Lambeth, Brixton)
To ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether teachers are included under the term officers in Schedule 3 (14); and if so, whether he will provide that teachers in voluntary schools shall be placed on the same footing as teachers in board schools for the purpose of compensation under Clauses 15 and 16.
§ (Answered by Sir William Anson.) The term "officers" in Schedule 2 (14) includes teachers. The provisions of Schedule 2 (15) and (16) are not made applicable to teachers in voluntary schools, because those schools are not transferred by the Bill from one public authority to another.
