HC Deb 17 March 1887 vol 312 c531
MR. SYDNEY BUXTON (Tower Hamlets, Poplar)

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether his attention has been called to the recent out break among the students at the Exeter Training College; and, whether it is his intention to institute any inquiry into the circumstances attending it, and into the complaints of the second year students in regard to the teaching staff?


A detailed statement of the circumstances attending the outbreak at the Exeter Training College has been placed in my hands by the Principal of the College, from which it appears that the students have now submitted to discipline, and expressed their regret for what occurred. No further inquiry on this point seems to be necessary; but I have thought it best to communicate with Her Majesty's Inspector of Training Colleges, who, at his next visit, will pay special attention to the qualifications of that member of the teaching staff in respect of whom complaint has been made.
