HC Deb 14 March 1887 vol 312 c186
SIR JOHN DORINGTON (Gloucester, Tewkesbury)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, in consequence of the Report of the Inspector of Reformatories and Industrial Schools as to the objections he entertains to combining departments for boys and for girls in the same industrial school, he intends to take any action in the direction of closing one of such departments in such industrial schools?


I share the opinion of the Inspector, that it is desirable, if possible, to place boys and girls in separate industrial schools; and I am now considering whether it will be possible to effect this separation, having regard to the number and situation of industrial schools in different parts of the country.
