HC Deb 23 July 1970 vol 804 cc177-8W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will introduce legislation to provide that teachers employed by local education authorities should maintain political impartiality in relation to the children under their care.

Mr. van Straubenzee

No. This is a matter not for legislation but for the proper exercise of their responsibilities by local education authorities and the managing and governing bodies of schools.
