HC Deb 23 April 1896 vol 39 cc1522-3
MR. D. H. COGHILL (Stoke-upon-Trent)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether the limit of 20s. a child, imposed by Section 26 of the Education Bill, applies to blind and deaf children supported and educated under the Elementary Education Act, 1893 (Blind and Deaf Children); and, if the limit does apply, will he, considering the expensive character of the education given to blind and deaf children, take steps to specifically exempt them from its operation.


Clause 26 is not intended to apply to blind and deaf children.
