HC Deb 03 July 1924 vol 175 c1484

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is now in possession of the Report of the Departmental Committee on the Training of Teachers; and whether he can relieve the uncertainty and anxiety of the uncertificated teachers in elementary schools by announcing the date of the next examination which will provide them with the opportunity of securing their final certificate?

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

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As I have already announced in answer to questions in this House, it is impossible for me to make any statement as to the future of the acting teachers certificate examination until I have received the Report of the Committee.
