The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Herbert Lewis):
My right hon. Friend is arranging to abolish three more administrative posts in the course of the next few months. The numbers of the Headquarters Staff will continue to be the subject of careful scrutiny, but he must remind the hon. Member that the School Teachers (Superannuation) Bill, 1922, if passed into law, will throw a considerable amount of additional work on the Board's staff.
