§ 32. Mr. WILLIAM THORNE
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the case of Edith Clark, a girl aged fourteen, an inmate of the West Ham Union; and, in view of the excellence of her contralto voice, will he give full power to the West Ham Board of Guardians to undertake her musical education?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The matter is receiving my sympathetic consideration, and I have already arranged for one of my officers to confer with a deputation from the board of guardians on the subject.
