asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is his policy towards teachers serving on the governing/managing bodies of schools where they are employed.
This is one of the matters on which my right hon. Friend will look forward to the advice of the committee of inquiry which, as he told the House on 27th January—[Vol. 885, c. 62–3]—the Government have decided to establish. Meanwhile, it is open to local education authorities to appoint teachers to membership of the governing/managing bodies of county schools in which they are employed.
