HC Deb 13 February 1922 vol 150 c650W
Lieut.-Colonel HURST

asked the President of the Board of Education whether the Board approves or disapproves of the practice of dismissing women teachers on marriage; and, if it disapproves of such practice, what action he will take to terminate it?


The responsibility for continuing to employ married women teachers properly rests with the local education authority, and the Board have refrained from expressing either approval or disapproval of women teachers on marriage. If it became my duty to express any opinion on this subject, I could not do so within the limits of question and answer in this House.
