HC Deb 31 March 1930 vol 237 c893
61. Mr. DAY

asked the President of the Board of Education the number of departments closed in the London area during the 12 months ended to the last convenient date; and the decrease of head teachers during the same period?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Sir Charles Trevelyan)

Twenty-seven departments in London public elementary schools were reported to the Board as closed or amalgamated with other departments during the year ended the 28th February last. Eleven new departments were opened, and there was, therefore, a net decrease of 16 in the number of head teacher posts.
