HC Deb 09 March 1896 vol 38 c444

I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education, if there is any objection to the children in the lower standards of a public elementary school learning geography from the ordnance maps of their own parish or district, so as to insure an intelligent understanding of what a map really means; and, if, in framing the New Code and Instructions to Inspectors, he will consider if it is possible to promote the use of such maps?


The Committee of Council not only do not object, they encourage the use of local maps. They cannot require managers to purchase the ordnance maps on account of the expense, but they have suggested that they might be placed in elementary schools as an advertisement.
