HC Deb 13 August 1901 vol 99 c601

I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether, under the new arrangements for not marking the school registers in country districts in the case of inclement weather, the Board of Education will rigidly insist upon the condition set forth in Article 83 of the Education Code for 1901 to the effect that the school must have been open not less than 400 times; or whether the Board of Education will issue a Minute adding a new exception to Article 83 of the Code, so as to render the new regulation of Appendix II., page 37, of the Revised Instructions, of greater practical utility to the country schools.


The answer to the first paragraph is in the affirmative, and, consequently, to the second in the negative.
