HC Deb 27 July 1944 vol 402 c940

Lords Amendment: In page 22, line 15, after "not", insert "while holding that position."

Mr. Butler

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

The object of this Amendment is to put it beyond doubt that a reserved teacher is eligible for promotion to a head teacher-ship. In the Bill as originally drafted that was in doubt. When a reserved teacher becomes a head teacher he or she is no longer reserved. We want to preserve the position whereby a reserved teacher is able to rise to the headship of the school.

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendment in page 22, line 46, agreed to.
