HC Deb 19 June 1930 vol 240 c598W

asked the President of the Board of Education the number of inspectors of physical training that are at present employed by his Department; and the average number of visits paid by these inspectors to elementary schools, secondary schools, and training colleges?


The number of inspectors of physical training employed under the Board of Education is 10. During the year ended 31st December, 1929, they paid 561 visits to elementary schools, 357 to secondary schools and 137 to training colleges. As regards elementary schools, it must be understood that the time of these officers is largely devoted to inspecting and advising upon the organisation of the instruction in physical training generally in the areas of local education authorities, rather than to the inspection of individual schools.
