HC Deb 30 March 1910 vol 15 cc1298-9

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, when forming his Estimates for the coming year, he would favourably consider the claims of the Potteries for a college of pottery, in view of the importance of scientific teaching of pottery to the English pottery trade, which is at the present time subject to regulations and restrictions not imposed upon pottery manufacture in any other country?


The Estimates for the year 1910–11 have already been published. It is, therefore, impossible to take this matter into consideration in connection with those Estimates. I do not understand precisely what the hon. Member wishes me to do, but if he will formulate some more definite proposal and send it to me I shall be happy to consider whether there is any action that I can usefully take in the matter.


I shall take advantage of that offer.
