HC Deb 25 March 1897 vol 47 c1325
MR. R. ASCROFT (Oldham)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education if he has received representations from the Oldham School Board representing the inconvenience and probable loss that will be sustained through the examinations of the Science and Art Department, fixed for the week ending the 26th June, clashing with the scholars' Jubilee holiday; whether there is still sufficient time to rearrange the dates for the examinations; and whether he will give the question his careful consideration?


The Committee of Council are at present considering the matter, and are in communication with the Scotch Education Department.
