HC Deb 11 August 1881 vol 264 cc1533-4

asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether the Commissioners appointed to inquire into the spread of technical knowledge in foreign countries will be directed to extend their inquiries to the technical instruction which may be given to women in any countries they may visit, and particularly to such institutions as the technical school for women established in the Rue de Seine and the Rue de Laval in Paris, the "Lette Verein" in Berlin, and other similar institutions?


The Royal Commission will inquire into technical instruction in its relation to industry, irrespective of whether it is given to men or women. And, no doubt, the particular institutions referred to in the Question of the hon. Member will come under their notice.
