Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education was a junior ministerial office in the United Kingdom Government. The Board of Education Act 1899 abolished the Committee of the Privy Council which had been responsible for education matters and instituted a new Board of Education from 1 April 1900. The Board was headed by a President. From the appointment of the Marquess of Londonderry as President in the Balfour government in August 1902 the post of Parliamentary Secretary to the Board was established.
The Board was in turn replaced by the Ministry of Education in 1944 and the post of Parliamentary Secretary to the Board was accordingly replaced by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Education.
