HC Deb 17 May 1906 vol 157 c640

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if ho can supply a Return stating what provision is made for the teaching of hygiene and temperance in public elementary schools, and for training teachers in these subjects in Canada, Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales, West Australia, and in Natal.


Information on the points referred to by the hon. Member is given in the Special Reports on the Educational Systems of the Colonies, Volumes 4 and 5, laid before Parliament in 1901 (Cd. 416 and Cd. 417). I have asked that the hon. Member shall be supplied with these Papers from the Colonial Office, and I hope they will roach him in the course of the day.
