§ MR. J. H. YOXALL (Nottingham, W.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education if he will consider the advisability of the appointment of a Select Committee, or will appoint a Departmental Committee, to consider means of supplying facilities for commercial education in schools and similar institutions in the United Kingdom; and if he will consider the advisability of appointing a temporary travelling Commissioner to investigate and report upon the facilities for commercial education afforded in schools abroad?
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
Commercial education is one of the branches of secondary education which the Government have now under consideration. Enquiries into the conditions of commercial education abroad have been for some time past made by the Special Enquiries Branch of the Education Department, which will supply all the information at their disposal.
