HC Deb 25 June 1908 vol 191 c95
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Secretary for Scotland if he will state under what circumstances the father of a child living at Upper Bayble, Island of Lewis, has been summoned by the School Board of Stornoway to appear before the Sheriff for not sending his child to school, seeing that the child is under six years of age, and that she would have to walk six miles a day if she returned home for the midday meal.


The Department have no information on the subject, and in any case the matter is one for the decision of the Sheriff and not of the Department.
