HC Deb 07 February 1986 vol 91 c280W
Mr. Maxton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to whom chairmen of boards of governors of colleges of education in Scotland are responsible for the actions taken by them.

Mr. Allan Stewart

[pursuant to his reply, 6 February 1986, c. 233]: Regulation 4 of the Teachers (Colleges of Education) (Scotland) Regulations 1967 provides for the constitution of a governing body for each college of education; and regulation 11(3) of those regulations contains provision for each such governing body to elect a chairman. The chairman is responsible to the governing body as a whole, subject to any delegated authority which that governing body may have granted to him.
