§ MR. MADDISON (Burnley)
To ask the President of the Board of Education whether the sanction he has given to the Kent County Council to give lessons in rifle shooting applies to all the schools under its jurisdiction; if not, whether he will give the names of the schools affected, with the ages of the children who are permitted to use rifles.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) I have nothing to add to the full reply which I gave this afternoon on this subject to the hon. Member for South Lanarkshire.
§ MR. H. J. WILSON (Yorkshire W.R., Holmfirth)
To ask the President of the Board of Education whether he will lay upon the Table any correspondence which has taken place in reference to the teaching or the practice of rifle shooting in schools.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The full information, which I have given in reply to the Question put to me this afternoon by the hon. Member for South Lanark-shire, is all that I have in my possession, and no useful purpose would be served by laying upon the Table the very brief correspondence in which that matter was dealt with.
