§ MR. HARRY FOSTER (Suffolk, Lowestoft)
I bog to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education if be is aware that the evening examinations of the Science and Art Department, though convenient to adult students, are very inconvenient to the increasing number of young students from the organised science day schools and other schools in the country; and whether it is possible for the Department to arrange for a special series of day examinations in such subjects as are usually taught in the above-mentioned schools?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Mr. ACLAND,) York, W.R., Rotherham
I have recently received a deputation upon this subject, which is under my careful consideration. The Science and Art Department has every desire to meet the wishes of the managers of organised science schools, but there are several difficulties in the way, and the proposed duplication of examinations would entail additional expense both upon the Department and the localities concerned.
