MR. YOXALL (Nottingham, W.)

To ask the President of the Board of Education whether, in the case of an open-air school held under the terms of Article 44 (g) of the Elementary School; Code, the Board will require a medical I certificate in respect of every child attending such school that the child is unable to receive proper benefit in an ordinary elementary school, or will such certificates be reserved to children attending an open-air school under the terms of the Defective and Epileptic Children's Act, and for children refused admission under Article 53 (b) (3) of the Code.

(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) Such a certificate as is referred to will not be required in the case of open-air schools conducted under Article 44 (g) of the Code for 1908. Schools conducted under The Elementary Education (Defective and Epileptic Children) Act, 1899, are subject to the regulations for special schools.
