HC Deb 02 July 1931 vol 254 c1445
31. Mr. EDE

asked the President of the Board of Education on what principle assistants appointed under Rules 56 are assigned or refused to the secondary schools in receipt of grant which make application for their services?


In the great majority of cases in which applications have been received from grant-earning schools for the appointment of French or German assistants for the coming year, it has been possible to grant the application. No rules are laid down for deciding in what cases applications shall be approved, but all the relevant circumstances are taken into account.
