Agricultural Reconstruction.: Board of Agriculture (Organisation). (26 Mar 1919)

Lieut-Colonel William Weigall: ..., a really progressive county. This is how their scheme in that county is described: Agricultural education is directed by the county organiser for agriculture. Itinerant cheese and butter schools are maintained. Schools and lectures in agricultural subjects are held throughout the county. In past years the teaching staff has been strengthened by an assistant-instructor in agriculture and...

Clause 3. — (Transfer of Powers and Duties to and from Minister.) (9 Apr 1919)

Dr Christopher Addison: ...his authority under such conditions as he may think fit. We had on the Committee a long discussion as to the duties of the President of the Board of Education in relation to medical treatment of school children, which has just been referred to by the last speaker, and although I endeavoured, without success, to persuade the Committee that the course they were suggesting was a little rash,...

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (Belfast) Bill. (9 May 1919)

Mr Thompson Donald: ...developments to-day, and certainly education is one of the most necessary. We want to try and give our boys and girls a better ideal than that which is measured by salary and wages. The national school system in Belfast to-day is lamentably deficient, both in point of accommodation and general standard. There are some 286 schools in Belfast, and of these ninety-five have no playground...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Food. (6 May 1920)

...of procuring food was so great that the children, who in those parts of the country have to walk very long distances, sometimes over trackless moors, for there are no roads, were unable to go to school for lack of food. That was not due entirely to poverty, but to lack of transport. The Ministry of Transport denies responsibility, and I do not know what Ministry is concerned in the matter,...

Orders of the Day — Women, Young Persons, and Children (Employment) (Recommitted) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Employment of women and young persons and shifts.) (30 Nov 1920)

Mr. THOMAS: I hope the Committee will not get into a schoolboy discussion on this question. I should like the Committee to visualise, first, the mother who gets up at four to 4.30 to see a daughter off to work, and at six o'clock has to prepare the breakfast for the husband or brother who may be going out at seven, and later in the day she has to prepare a meal for a, daughter who is going...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: American Relief Committee. (21 Apr 1921)

...surely the mother and children incapable of resistance through months of struggle against cold and hunger.' … 'Children of tender years, ragged and wretched, trudge daily through the cold to a school now used for a relief station to obtain the one meal a day on which they live—a piece of bread and a warm drink.'

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: School Camps. (26 May 1921)

...SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Herbert Lewis): My right hon. Friend understands that the hon. Member is concerned with children who receive instruction elsewhere than at the school, in accordance with arrangements approved under Article 44 of the Code, and not under Section 17 of the Education Act of 1918, though the conditions under which they receive such instruction are those...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Roan School, Greenwich. (23 Mar 1922)

Mr Charles Ammon: 54. asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that, prior to the War, the Board of Education threatened the governors of the Roan School, Greenwich, with loss of grant if better and more suitable premises were not built; and will he state why, although in 1918 a site was obtained, the rebuilding of the school was forbidden, seeing that the school is now overcrowded and...

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 2) BILL.: Education. (28 Mar 1922)

Mr Morgan Jones: ...whereby we can make profits. They seem to speak of education as though it can be made to pay financially. You cannot bring the ethics and the practices of the counting-house into the elementary schools or into the secondary schools either. We hear that there is a religion of the five per cents. I do not know whether there is or there is not, but there certainly can be no education of the...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Public Assistance Expenditure. (4 Apr 1922)

...fall upon a particular class of the taxpayer. It is no more possible to do that in a country, which is an aggregate of homes, than it would be in any one home to apportion different parts of the meal on the table to different members of the family and to say they should contribute to providing the meal in different proportions. My Amendment necessarily includes rates. These are in the...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Amalgamation with unemployment benefit of grants payable; under 11 and 12 Geo. 5, c. 62, in respect of certain dependants.) (6 Apr 1922)

Mr Walter Elliot:, but in the years between one and five, which are amongst the critical years of a child's life, it is coming into small benefit in respect of this grant and into no benefit in respect of the meals provided at schools. It might be possible for the right hon. Gentleman to make a concession in respect of these children. I ask the attention of the Minister of Education whether it would not...

Orders of the Day — Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1922–23.: Board of Education. (27 Apr 1922)

Mr Herbert Fisher: ...,450,000. Within the limits of the £62,450,000 there are certain interior limitations—of £12,000,000 for administrative and other expenditure and £3,400,000 for special services, including the School Medical Service, and a limit of £300,000 to the expenditure on the provision of meals which forms part of the special service of which I have been speaking so far.

Orders of the Day — Supply. (27 Apr 1922)

Dr Christopher Addison: I must have misunderstood the right hon. Gentleman. One recognises his difficulties with the smaller schools, but there is no question that the state of many of our schools, especially in country districts, is a disgrace to our educational system. Many of them are grossly overcrowded. Many of them are in a very unsatisfactory condition, considering the number of children that attend them. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Feeding of School Children. (8 May 1922)

Mr. T. THOMSON: 28. asked the Prime Minister whether the effect of the Government's decision that the cost of school feeding this year in excess of £300,000 must be borne by boards of guardians, instead of by local education authorities as in the past, will be that children so fed cannot get meals unless their parents receive poor law relief; and, under these circumstances, will the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Elementary Schools (Grants). (11 May 1922)

Mr. TREVELYAN THOMSON: 54. asked the President of the Board of Education whether the substantive grants to local education authorities for the current year for elementary schools will be paid on exactly the same basis as last year, namely, under the formula which provides that the amount shall be calculated at 36s. for each unit of average attendance, plus three-fifths of teachers' approved...

School Children (Provision of Meals).

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Provision of Meals. (2 Aug 1922)

Mr William Thorne: 87. asked the President of the Board of Education if, seeing that it is a statutory obligation of the Government under the Provision of Meals Acts, 1906 to 1914, to pay half of the expenditure on the provision of meals and that the London County Council made an estimate for an expenditure of £317,000 for 1922–23 for this purpose, he can state the reason why the Board of Education was not...

Debate on the Address. (23 Nov 1922)

Mr Douglas Pielou: I am like the schoolboy who has been referred to before, with this exception, that I happen to be a Board School boy, and have sat here most of the afternoon, and have heard various reflections cast upon my party. Unfortunately, there were not as many of my party present as I should have liked. [HON. MEMBERS: "Why?"] But I do object to some of the remarks that have been made. I do not think...
