HC Deb 01 December 1909 vol 13 c475

presented a Petition from the parents of the 120 Catholic children who attend the Catholic school at Low Valley, near Barnsley, Yorkshire. The petitioners stated that they "have maintained this school for four years and three months by a weekly levy on their wages, and, in addition, have had to pay the usual education rates and taxes from which they derive no benefit." They appealed to the House "to protect for them the rights and liberties granted to all by Magna Charta and the forms of law secured to all by the Bill of Bights, and also to secure for them the holding of an inquiry by the Minister of Education which will redress their grievances."
