§ MR. CHARLES ALLEN (Gloucestershire, Stroud)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether he will consider the advisability of withdrawing the Article of the new Education Code which prevents girls under 12 years of age earning a grant for attendance at Cookery Classes; and, if not, whether he will consider the advisability of increasing the grant in respect of the elder children.
§ MR. REA (Gloucester)
At the same time may I ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether, in view of the effect of the new Education Code withdrawing grants to Schools for attendance of girls under 12 years of age in Cookery Classes on the continuation of such Classes, he will consider the advisability of giving such increased grant in respect of the elder children, as may be necessary to maintain those Classes in existence.
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL FOR EDUCATION (Sir J. GORST,) Cambridge University
The Board of Education 683 do not intend to alter the Grants for Cookery in the Code of the ensuing year.
