HC Deb 16 September 1909 vol 10 cc2303-4

asked the Chief Secretary how many teachers (men) are eligible by rules and recommended by inspectors for promotion to first-of-first grade, and how many will be promoted; and will any of the former, ranked first-of-first class, be debarred promotion owing to standard numbers?


The Commissioners of National Education inform me that they have recently promoted 31 male teachers, who had qualified for promotion, to the first division, and 67 to the second division of the first grade. Twenty-six of those promoted to the first division, and 39 of those promoted to the second division, can receive no financial benefit until vacancies occur in those divisions. The Commissioners do not consider that it would be in the interests of the public service to say how many teachers have been recommended for promotion by the inspectors.
