HC Deb 04 March 1926 vol 192 cc1600-1
31. Mr. HURD

asked the President of the Board of Education what steps he has taken to bring the Board's pamphlet on rural education to the notice of persons interested in the question?


In addition to being circulated to Government Departments and the Press, the pamphlet was issued to the Royal Horticultural Society, the Royal Agricultural Society, the National Farmers' Union, the Central Landowners' Association, the Land Union, the Central Chamber of Agriculture, the National Union of Agricultural Workers, and the Workers' Union, to all local education authorities in England and Wales and the Isle of Man, and to the various associations of local authorities and associations of teachers. The pamphlet has, of course, been put on sale, and can be purchased from His Majesty's Stationery Office sale offices in London, and elsewhere, or through any bookseller. I shall welcome suggestions from hon. Members as to the best means of promoting in rural areas a study of the problems indicated in the pamphlet.
