asked the President of the Board of Education, whether his attention has been drawn to the decision given by the magistrates at Lowestoft that parents had reasonable cause for not sending their children to certain schools in the borough by reason of the qualifications of teachers employed in such schools; and whether such schools are still in receipt of grants from the Imperial Exchequer?

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in pursuance of his powers for dealing with education authorities who fail to carry out their statutory duties, he will take into consideration the present state of educational affairs in Lowestoft with a view to taking action thereon?


For a general statement of the Board's attitude in this matter I may refer the hon. Members to the reply I gave on the 12th July last to my hon. Friend the Member for the Northern Division of East Ham (Mr. Charles Crook).
