HC Deb 24 March 1898 vol 55 cc735-6
MR. ERNEST FLOWER (Bradford, W.)

I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether his attention has been called to the suggestion of Mr. Nathaniel Louis Cohen as to the advisability of publishing further particulars of the average attendance of scholars in public elementary schools; and whether he will include in the next Departmental Report a list of schools varying 5 per cent. above and 5 per cent. below the national average of attendance?


The Department are at present preparing tables which will contain information bearing on the subject referred to in the Question. Perhaps the hon. Member will kindly wait till these tables are published before moving further in the matter.
