§ SIR EDWARD SASSOON (Hythe)
To ask the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the working of the Teachers' Register contravenes the Act of 1899, by making an invidious distinction between teachers in different categories of schools, and fails to carry out the intentions of Parliament as testified to by the memorandum of the 757 Board of Education [Cd. 3017]; and, if so, whether he contemplates rectifying this state of things, in view of the intention of His Majesty's Government to drop Clause 36 of the Education Bill.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) I have nothing to add to the reply given to a Question addressed to me by the hon. Member for Stirlingshire on this subject this afternoon, except to say that I must not be taken as endorsing the accuracy of the description of the position of affairs contained in the two paragraphs of the Question.
