§ Mr. CASSELLS
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is prepared to take immediate steps towards the reinstatement of the degraded rector of Lenzie Academy?
§ Sir G. COLLINS
Under the provisions of Section 55 of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1872, the right and duty to appoint the teachers in public schools is vested solely in the education authority. Accordingly it would not be competent for me to interfere with the discretion of the authority in this matter.
