§ 37. Sir W. SUGDEN
asked the President of the Board of Education if he will make suitable arrangements to enable students from special schools for defective children (excepting those defective mentally) to be further trained that, should they show capacity, they may eventually receive also a university training, and, if necessary, also at the cost of the State.
§ Lord E. PERCY
The Board's Special Service Regulations, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy, make special provision for the vocational training of students from special schools for defective children. Apart from this, all the facilities for higher education which are open to ordinary students are also open to those who are suffering from any physical defect, except, of course, in those cases where the defect is such as to prevent any particular course or courses of study being followed.
§ Sir W. SUGDEN
Is it not essential that, as in the United States of America special treatment is provided for defective children, except mentally defective children, similar methods should obtain in our own country?
