MR. LLOYD MORGAN (Carmarthenshire, W.)
To ask the President of the Board of Education whether, in the event of Part IV. of the Education (England and Wales) Bill becoming law, and a council for Wales being established, he will state the position of the present inspectors of His Majesty's schools in Wales; will they be transferred to the Welsh council or will the council on the passing of the Act be empowered to appoint their own inspectors and officials.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) Under the clause as now in the Bill the Welsh council will certainly have power to appoint inspectors and officials of its own. I cannot undertake to discuss the details of the Bill in a reply to a Question. There will be an opportunity for discussing the point during the Committee stage of the Bill.
