HC Deb 21 January 1947 vol 432 cc35-6W
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 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.
