§ Sir E. Graham-Little
asked the Minister of Education whether she is aware that several more local authorities, whose names have been given to her, have enforced or propose to enforce membership of a trade union upon teachers in their 36W employ as a condition of employment; and whether, in view of Regulation 11, S.R.O., May, 1945, she will now take steps to secure that her regulations are observed by local authorities.
§ Miss Wilkinson
Any breach of my regulations or any threat to the efficient conduct of the educational services in a particular area, would naturally call for my intervention. I am not aware, however, that in the cases which the hon. Member has cited, there is any occasion for action on my part now.
