HC Deb 01 August 1908 vol 193 cc2080-1

To ask the President of the Board of Education whether training colleges, in order to be recognised by the Board, have to fulfil the conditions set forth in Sections 7 (g), 7 (h), and 8 of the Training College Regulations, 1908, and, if not, whether he will state the names of those colleges which are recognised without fulfilling the conditions of the above sections.

(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) I think the hon. Baronet must be under some misapprehension with regard to this matter. Section 8 of the Training College Regulations, as stated therein, is applicable to all training colleges, and the Board have no reason to believe that any college recognised by them fails to comply with it. Sections 7 (g) and 7 (h) are applicable only to colleges which are not recognised before the 1st August, 1907.
