HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 cc1818-9

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether his attention has been called to the dismissal of an assistant master in Billhead High School by the Govan School Board solely on the ground that the teacher in question could not conscientiously take part during school hours in promoting the sale of War Savings Certificates; and whether he proposes to take any action to secure an appeal for the teacher against the decision of the school board?


I have seen a statement in the Press relating to this case, from which it appears that the teacher in question has not been dismissed from the service of the school board. In the circumstances, the second part of the question does not arise.
