HC Deb 10 March 1887 vol 311 cc1736-7
MR. KENYON&c.) (Denbigh,

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether it is intended in the forthcoming Code to provide any remedies for the grievances complained of by school teachers and managers, more especially as regards the following points—namely: article 114, which limits the Government grant to 17s. 6d. a head, and which has recently been more stringently applied than formerly; article 109 (Rules XII.—XVII.), which, in the opinion of many managers, are killing the teaching of drawing; and the regulations as to the allowance of grant to scholars in Standard VII.; and, when the Code will be laid upon the Table of the House?


The Code will, I am informed, be in circulation to-morrow, when my hon. Friend will see that the payments for drawing have been placed under the control of the Science and Art Department, and will, in consequence, be entirely unaffected by, and outside the operation of, the 17s. 6d. limit. A Mi- nute, embodying the new Regulations, which have not undergone much change, has been, drawn up and was laid on the Table this afternoon.
