HC Deb 18 April 1911 vol 24 c615

asked the President of the Board of Education how many rural head teachers, if any, have been made inspectors under the Board of Education during the past ten years?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Runciman)

I assume that the phrase "rural head teachers" is not intended to exclude the head teachers of rural schools other than elementary. On this assumption the answer to the hon. Member's question is that among the inspectors appointed during the last ten years eight have been head masters in what may be described as rural schools.
