§ Mr. KING
asked the President of the Board of Education whether it is the intention of the Government that the definition of a child in the Education Bill, as a child who is under an obligation to attend school, shall apply to the children mentioned in Clause 2 and restrict the benefits of that Clause to such children as are compelled to attend?
§ Mr. KING
asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in view of his decision that the nursery schools and continuation schools suggested by the Education Bill are not to be public elementary schools within the meaning of the Education Acts, it is the intention of the Government to treat them as other than elementary and subject to Sections 3 and 4 of the Education Act, 1902?
§ Mr. FISHER
The nursery schools will be supplied or aided under Part III. and continuation schools will be established and maintained under Part II. of the Education Act, 1902. Sections 3 and 4 of that Act will, therefore, apply to continuation schools, but not to nursery schools.
