asked the President, of the Board of Education whether he is aware that certain local education authorities are employing certificated teachers in posts that would normally be filled by uncertificated teachers, and that the certificated teachers so employed are being remunerated at the rates laid down in the Burnham scales for uncertificated teachers; can he state how many teachers are so employed; and whether he will take steps to prevent such a practice?

I have no information as to the number so employed, but I have no reason to think that there are any sufficient grounds for my intervention.
