HC Deb 11 April 1912 vol 36 c1393
Captain CRAIG

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he was aware that a pamphlet had been printed for His Majesty's Stationery Office for Ireland, at the instance of the Commissioners of National Education for Ireland, and circulated at the public expense, and which, being entitled Physical Training, was really an advertisement for a book published by the Educational Company of Ireland; was the Educational Company of Ireland paying any consideration to the National Board for this advertisement; and would the Stationery Office undertake to print and circulate a pamphlet setting forth the qualifications of every Irish writer on educational subjects and the merits of every deserving educational treatise?


A pamphlet entitled "Notes for Teachers" on Physical Training, drawn up by the Commissioners of National Education in Ireland, has been published through the Stationery Office in the ordinary way, and amongst other books of reference mentioned in it is a primer published by the Educational Company of Ireland. I think it is not unusual in such pamphlets to refer teachers to manuals which may be useful to them, and no consideration is ever received in such cases.
