Children Act 1908 (Inspector of Reformatory and Industrial Schools)


The Inspector of Reformatory and Industrial Schools was a Ministerial appointee mandated to inspect 'certified schools' under the Children Act 1908. The position likely fell into abeyance by c. 2000, following closure of the remaining certified schools in the late 1990s. The 1908 Act itself (including the inspector provisions) was fully repealed in 2007
