HC Deb 24 May 1928 vol 217 c2049
22. Mr. HANNON

asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the proposal for the foundation of an English college in Belgrade for the education of Yugo-Slav boys in the English language, and which shall be conducted on the methods of an English public school; and, seeing that such a project will tend to the promotion of a more intimate understanding between the two countries, is he prepared to assist the proposal by any means at his disposal?


I am afraid that I have no information about this project other than what has appeared in the Press. I should be glad to receive any further particulars which my hon. Friend may be able to let me have.


Is my Noble Friend aware of the very great interest taken throughout Yugo-Slavia in the English educational system and English institutions generally, and if any representations are made to him will he consider them?


I have said that I shall be very glad to receive any suggestions that my hon. Friend cares to make to me.

Forward to
