§ MR. T. E. ELLIS (Merionethshire)
asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether he can see his way to publish annually, instead of biennially, the Report of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Elementary Schools in Wales?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY) (Sheffield, Hallam)
(who replied) said The hon. Member is aware that Wales is one of the six Divisions for each of which a Report is presented every two years by the Senior Inspector in charge; and unless the staff was largely increased it would be impossible to pro- 888 duce these Reports more often, without a serious sacrifice of the time now occupied by the Inspector in other and equally important duties. Note has been taken of a suggestion thrown out by the hon. Member last year; and the next Report will contain some statistical information of interest to hon. Gentlemen from Wales.
