The Educational Institute of Scotland, petitioners

Education – Nursery schools. Court of Session: Refusing a reclaiming motion in judicial review proceedings by a teaching union challenging the legality of an education authority appointing persons who were not registered teachers as heads of nursery schools, the court held that the Lord Ordinary had not erred in rejecting the petitioners' grounds for review based on statutory illegality, school closure, breach of a collective bargaining agreement, absence of power to make the decision complained of, and disappointment of a legitimate expectation of consultation.
