§ SIR JOHN GORST (Cambridge University)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether it is the duty of a teacher in an elementary school, if he finds a child destitute of necessary food, to apply to the relieving officer of the district; if not, what course is it the teacher's duty to take.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Sir WILLIAM ANSON, Oxford University)
The duty of a teacher in an elementary school is defined by the terms of his 646 agreement with his managers or local education authority. I am not prepared to say what duties such an agreement may impose, except that they must not involve an infringement of Article 15 of the Code.
