§ 15. Lord NINIAN CRICHTON-STUART
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been drawn to the remarks of the judge and counsel in the Welsh Central Board of Education case at Swansea Assizes; and whether the Board of Education proposes to take any steps to put the affairs of the Welsh Central Board of Education into proper working order?
§ 16. Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the criticisms of and accusations of carelessness in the affairs of the Central Welsh Board made by Mr. Justice Atkin; whether he will make a special inquiry into the ad ministration of the Central Welsh Board; and whether he will issue Regulations which will render it less easy for such irregularities as have recently occurred to occur again or such temptations placed in the way of junior officials?
I have seen the remarks of the Assize judge which are referred to in both questions. Until the Welsh Central Board have had a full opportunity of considering the matter and taking action thereon, I am unable to say whether any action on my part will be necessary.
