HC Deb 31 July 1934 vol 292 c2453
13. Mr. T. SMITH

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in the case of those local education authorities who, in order to secure efficient staffing of junior instruction centres, find it necessary to make permanent appointments which would otherwise be surplus to their requirements, he will continue to make a grant towards the additional expenditure involved in retaining this additional staff pending its absorption into the ordinary school services, provided that such appointments are approved by him in the first instance and are appointments of teachers capable of being and qualified for absorption into the school service?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Mr. Oliver Stanley)

The conditions governing the payment of Exchequer grants to local education authorities in respect of teachers appointed for the work at junior instruction centres are set out in a memorandum which has been issued to those authorities and, if I may, I will send a copy of the memorandum to the hon. Member.
