HC Deb 08 December 1893 vol 19 c830
MR. BENSON (Oxfordshire, Woodstock)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he has considered the views expressed at the Conference on Secondary Education, which was held at Oxford in October last at the invitation of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Oxford; and whether the Government propose to take any action in the matter?


The Government have carefully considered the views expressed at the important Conference on Secondary Education at Oxford, at which the representatives of many Educational Bodies were present, and they have determined, in accordance with the opinions repeatedly expressed at that Conference, to advise the appointment of a Royal Commission to make recommendations as to the best methods of organising Secondary Education in England, and on other matters.
