§ 42. Colonel GRETTON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education if local education authorities have discretion in applying the principle of central schools in the areas under their control and are free to exercise discretion where local circumstances render the principle of central schools inadvisable, uneconomical, or otherwise inapplicable to any part of the area under their control?
§ M. RAMSBOTHAM
The answer is in the affirmative. The Board of Education have not imposed any rigid rule in 2767 the matter. Each case is considered on its merits in the light of local circumstances.
§ Mr. A. BEVAN
Is it not a fact that this system of allowing exceptions to the general rules laid down by the Board of Education is causing educational anarchy all over the country?
