HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 c2337
43. Major Viscount SANDON

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his Department have made any official communication to the Board of Education as to the distinctive use of the expressions, Dominions and Colonies, with a view to the elimination of the use of the word Colonies in schools throughout the United Kingdom in other than its accurate sense; and, if not, whether they will consider the advisability of doing so at once?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; as to the second, I will bring the Noble Lord's suggestion to the notice of my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Education.
