HC Deb 23 March 1905 vol 143 c960
MR. GEORGE WHITE (Norfolk, N. W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether he is aware that in the Yorktown (Surrey) Council School the religious instruction is given by the vicar of the parish and is of a sectarian character; and whether he will intimate to the education authority of the district that such proceedings are not in accordance with the Education Acts, and must be discontinued at once.


I am afraid that I have no information as to the case referred to by the hon. Member. I will make inquiries from the county council as to whether the Conscience Clause or the Cowper-Temple Clause have been violated.
