HC Deb 30 March 1894 vol 22 c1005
SIR J. WHITEHEAD (Leicester)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he is prepared to recommend, as part of the curriculum of our elementary schools, such instruction, either by coloured drawings or otherwise, as will show the evil consequences on the body and mind of drinking intoxicating liquors?


The Code and Revised Instructions to Inspectors already make provision by which lessons on the subject of temperance can be given, and there is a slight addition to the New Code on this matter. The provision of drawings and the like, which may be valuable as illustrations, rests with managers and Boards, and not with the Department.
