asked the President of the Board of Education whether the House of Commons will have an opportunity of discussing Circular 1297, addressed to local education authorities and managers of special schools, recommending a drastic curtailment of the teaching staff; and if he is aware that many experts and social workers on behalf of children mentally afflicted are opposed to the cutting down of grants for this work?

It will be open to hon. Members to raise this question, should they so desire, when the Board's Estimates are under discussion in Committee of Supply. On the general issue, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my right hon. Friend to the hon. Member for North Tottenham (Mr. Morrison) on the 1st March last.
