§ Mr. GILLETT
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been drawn to the action of the Herts County Council in refusing to confirm the selection of the Letchworth School Management Committee of an assistant teacher for the headmastership of the Westbury Council School, on the ground that the headmastership of A grade schools must be given to a headmaster of a grade B school; and will he inquire into the matter?
§ Lord E. PERCY
I assume that the school, to which the hon. Member refers, is the new West View Council School at Letchworth. The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, but I may point out that the Local Education Authority is responsible for the appointment of head teachers in council schools.
