HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 cc1069-70
34. Lieut.-Commander Gurney Braith-waite

asked the Minister of Education whether he has completed his investigation into the alteration of examination papers at the Church of England School, Highbridge, Somerset, and with what result.

The Minister of Education (Mr. Tom-linson)

As a result of my further inquiries I am satisfied that the local education authority have done everything they could to meet the situation and that there is nothing more I can usefully do.

Lieut.-Commander Braithwaite

Could the right hop. Gentleman make one point clear? Was the culprit traced who was responsible for this particularly mean action which might have jeopardised the whole educational future of the children of this school?

Mr. Tomlinson

Yes, Sir, traced and removed from a position in which anything of the sort could happen again.
