§ Mr. EDE
asked the President of the Board of Education if every supplementary teacher employed in a public elementary school in England and Wales has to be individually approved by His Majesty's inspector of schools before such employment; what record is kept of such first approval; and how many applications for approval were rejected during the year ended 31st March, 1928?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
Local authorities are required to inform the inspector of all appointments, including transfers, and must terminate an appointment at any time if required by him. As regards the second and third parts of the question, my Department do not keep records of the approval or rejection of individual supplementary teachers.
