HC Deb 14 March 1904 vol 131 c968
MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that at the Duke of York's School 560 boys from nine to sixteen years of age are taught by one head and five assistant masters, who have also to train forty Army schoolmasters in the training college, and that in spare time one of the masters has to keep the magic lanterns of the Army in order, he will consider the advisability of increasing the teaching staff.


The question of the physical, moral, and intellectual training of the Duke of York's School is now being considered by a Committee, and their attention has been directed to the question of the strength of the teaching staff.
