§ SIR JOHN GORST
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education what steps His Majesty's Government are taking to carry out any of the recommendations of the Committee on Physical Deterioration which relate to masters within the jurisdiction of the Board of Education.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Sir WILLIAM ANSON, Oxford University)
The recommendations which would appear to fall within the existing administrative powers of the Board of Education are recommendations 17, 18, 20, 37. The Board have had under their consideration for some time the subjects of these recommendations, and have taken, and are taking, steps which they hope may be of some practical utility on the lines indicated in the Report. They are also taking steps, so far as legislation is not involved, to give some effect to recommendation 35.
