HC Deb 03 March 1908 vol 185 cc533-4

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education if he can state the names and religious denomination of the committee who framed the syllabus of religious instruction adopted by the London County Council; and if the late Archbishop of Canterbury and the present Archbishop have expressed approval of it.


I have no authoritative information as to the first part of the Question. With regard to the second, the present Archbishop of Canterbury has expressed his approval of the religious instruction given in London under the London syllabus, but I have no information as to the views of his predecessor.
