§ 40. Mr. R. RICHARDSON
asked the President of the Board of Education if it is the present policy of the Board of Education that His Majesty's inspectors 1972 are no longer required or encouraged to submit reports as to the efficiency or otherwise of the untrained teachers appointed by local education authorities or by the managers of non-provided schools; and, seeing that such policy of the Board is calculated to involve a waste of public moneys through the employment of incompetent teachers, will he reconsider it?
§ Major BARNSTON
The Board have not issued, nor do they intend to issue, any such instructions or suggestions to their inspectors; the second part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
§ Mr. HARRIS
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the London Education Authorities have engaged 100 new entrants as teachers, while many teachers are out of employment?
