§ 12. Mr. EDE
asked the President of the Board of Education what steps he has taken to bring into operation the Education Act, 1936; and to what extent he has secured the co-operation of the local authorities and voluntary bodies concerned?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Oliver Stanley)
Discussions with local education authorities on matters of procedure and machinery arising under the Act have already begun, and the representatives of the voluntary bodies have been invited to participate in the discussion of those matters with which they are particularly concerned.
§ Mr. STANLEY
No doubt subsequently some kind of circular will be issued, but meanwhile, of course, we are discussing matters with the local authorities as a necessary preliminary.
