HC Deb 18 February 1932 vol 261 c1809
35. Mr. MANDER

asked the President of the Board of Education if he will state what steps he proposes to take with reference to the proposals contained in paragraphs 697 to 700 of the Report of the Royal Commission on Licensing with reference to education?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Sir Donald Maclean)

I can assure my hon. Friend that I have been carefully studying the educational recommendations of the Royal Commission on Licensing. I greatly appreciate their commendation of the publications on the teaching of hygiene and of health which were issued by the Board in 1920 and 1928, and these are now being reviewed to see if any modifications can be made which would increase their usefulness. I am also considering what other steps I can usefully take to promote effective instruction in these subjects.
