HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 cc1333-4
3. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Education whether his attention has been called to the recommendation of the Somerset Education Committee that divisional executives be discontinued and that the powers of school governors and managers be increased; and whether he will make a statement on his policy in this matter both in Somerset and elsewhere.

Mr. Tomlinson

I have seen Press reports of this recommendation, which has still to be considered by the county council as local education authority. As regards the last part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to paragraph 4 of Circular 210, of which I am sending him a copy.
