§ MR. COOPER (Southwark, Bermondsey)
To ask the President of the Board of Education whether any, and, if any, how many, women general inspectors or examiners in the elementary education branch, the training of teachers and higher elementary schools division, or inspectors of elementary schools, secondary schools and technical institutes, and evening schools, are employed in his Department; and will he give the number in each branch.
(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) I must refer my hon. friend to the Answer I gave to this Question on 11th November last, to which I need only now add that the services of the women inspectors are not restricted to any one branch of the Board's work or to any particular grade of schools. There are no women examiners at the Board of Education.
