§ 1. Mr. KING
asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in view of the pculiar distress caused by the War, he will issue a Circular to local education authorities calling attention to the hardships of the poor caused by school pence, and to the power of local authorities to abolish these fees?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Dr. Addison)
I see no reason for issuing a special Circular on this subject at the present moment as local education authorities are, I believe, fully alive to the importance of meeting distress if it arises, not only in this way, but in any direction they can.
