HC Deb 21 November 1882 vol 274 c1790

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, If the Government intend taking any steps early next Session for bringing about the education of gipsy and other travelling children living in vans, carts, shows, and other temporary dwellings?


Sir, it is exceedingly difficult to devise any effectual scheme for the education of the nomadic population referred to in the Question of my hon. Friend, and up to the present we have received no suggestion for dealing with the subject which appears to be practical. The matter, however, is under consideration, and we propose during the Recess to confer with the Local Government Board respecting it.
