§ 26. Mr. MANSFIELD
asked the President of the Board of Education if he has made inquiries into the strike of school children in operation in the Eaton area; and what action he proposes to take to try and effect a settlement of this dispute?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Lees-Smith)
My attention has been called to the unfortunate situation which has arisen in connection with the reorganisation of schools in the Eston district, and I am keeping myself informed of developments.
§ Major COLFOX
Is not the best way of dealing with school children who go on strike merely to whip them?
