HC Deb 03 February 1949 vol 460 cc263-4W
93. Mr. Barton

asked the Minister of Education what disputes between divisional executives for education, including excepted districts, and local education authorities have been registered with the Minister under the terms of the Education Act, 1944, Schedule 1, Part III (or under Schemes of Divisional Administration; what has been the nature of dispute in each case, the determination given by the Minister and a statement of instances where the dispute has not been determined because the Minister has been advised that he has no jurisdiction.

Mr. Tomlinson

Twenty-five such disputes have been referred to me. Of these, 19 related to the salary of the divisional education officer, six of which were determined in favour of the local education authority and 13 have not been determined because I have been advised that I have no jurisdiction. One dispute about the construction and maintenance of school buildings is still under consideration. I am sending my hon. Friend details of the remaining five cases.
