HC Deb 15 April 1913 vol 51 c1807

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether the definition of a farm school contained in the printed circular of the Board dated March, 1913, and headed Agricultural Education in connection with Farm Schools and Farm Institutes, is intended to convey the meaning that winter short courses in agriculture will be restricted to those who have attended elementary schools; and, if so, seeing that in Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, and many other counties the proportion of farmers' sons attending elementary schools is small, he will amend this definition so as to include those who have received their education through other channels?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; the second part therefore does not arise.
