HC Deb 10 April 1913 vol 51 c1347
38. Mr. ALDEN

asked whether any provision is made for proper breathing exercises in elementary schools; and whether any co-ordinated attempt has been made to teach either voice production or a sound accent in the London schools?


Article 2 (9) of the Code of Regulations for Public Elementary Schools provides for the teaching of hygiene and physical training, including exercises in proper breathing; and for the purpose of this instruction the Board's official Syllabus of Physical Exercises, 1909, is being followed. I have no information with regard to the second part of the question.
