HC Deb 19 April 1955 vol 540 c30
42. Mr. Albu

asked the Minister of Education who has been appointed to the post of Principal of the College of Aeronautics.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education (Mr. Dennis Vosper)

The College is at present under an Acting Principal, and no permanent appointment has yet been made.

Mr. Albu

Can the Parliamentary Secretary say when the appointment might be made, and explain why there has been this extraordinary delay, which is having a very serious effect on the work of the College?

Mr. Vosper

The College is, of course, an independent body, but I have every reason to believe that the appointment will be made very shortly, and this Question will be brought to the notice of the Governors.
