§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
To ask the President of the Board of Education if he can say why the publications of the Catholic Truth Society are accepted for prizes in public elementary schools and given to Protestant pupils; and will these same schools be permitted to receive publications of Protestant societies for the same purpose.
(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) The selection of prizes awarded to children in public elementary schools rests with the bodies or individuals who present them. It is not a matter on which the Board of Education issue regulations.
