§ Mr. Fleming
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education what proportion of the cost of the refresher courses for school medical officers will be borne nationally and by the local authorities concerned; and how many such courses will be held per annum?
A refresher course for school medical officers organised by the Society of Medical Officers of Health in collaboration with the Manchester education committee is being held this week at Manchester. The Board of Education have agreed to pay grant at the rate of 50 per cent. of reasonable expenditure incurred by local education authorities in connection with the attendance of school medical officers or assistant school medical officers at this course.
