asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the education committee of the Kent County Council has to engage additional clerical staff to carry out the Education Accounts (Annual Statement) Order, and that this additional staff will have to be a permanent addition to the education staff of the committee; and will he therefore indicate what economies in staff are to be effected at the Board headquarters to produce the large economy expected by him?

I have no information as to the first part of the question, but I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answers which my right hon. Friend gave him on the 3rd and 11th of May.

If the right hon. Gentleman is furnished with information on the lines mentioned in my question, will he send an answer showing how savings can be effected?

There is no doubt that the new form of accounts will result in very considerable economies.
