§ Mr. KELLAWAY
asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware of the hardships arising from the exercise by the managers of non-provided schools of the power given them by Sub-section (7), Clause 3, of the Education Act of 1902, to dismiss teachers on religious grounds without any right of appeal to the education authority; and whether his Department has under consideration such an alteration of the law as will secure for public school teachers a right of appeal to a public authority?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. J. A. Pease)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In regard to the second part of the question, I have nothing to add to the reply I gave on 2nd November to a similar question put by my hon. Friend the Member for the Colne Valley Division, a copy of which I am sending the hon. Member.
