§ MR. O'SHEA
asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether 757 he has caused inquiry to be made into the statement of a Member of the House to the effect that four children have recently been flogged in a school within jurisdiction of the Board for refusing to conform to a religion different from that professed by their parents?
§ MR. DODSON
Sir, as no clue has been afforded as to the name of the school in question, and as there are several hundred such schools in the Kingdom, I could scarcely be expected to answer the inquiry. When the hon. Member mentions the name of the school, I will ascertain the truth of the matter.
