§ MR. T. E. ELLIS (Merionethshire)
asked the Tice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether he will include in the promised Report on Elementary Education in Wales, a review of the progress which has been made in Welsh education since the passing of the Elementary Education Act of 1870?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT (Sir WILLIAM HART DYKE) (Kent, Dartford)
Each general Report is designed to cover the period of two years that has elapsed since the last one was presented, and it would be impossible, with a due regard to the way in which an Inspector's time is occupied, to expect more. 365 Such a review as the hon. Member wishes for is to be found in the general Reports which have been issued from time to time since 1870.
§ MR. T. E. ELLIS
asked, whether the right hon. Gentleman could not publish officially the facts and figures published unofficially by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Sheffield (Mr. Mundella), and which was supplied to him by the Education Department?
§ SIR WILLIAM HAET DYKE
said, he did not quite understand to what the hon. Member referred. His impression was that the facts and figures referred to were abstracted from the Report. \i any further information could be obtained, he should be happy to furnish it to the hon. Member.
