HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 c2052W

asked the President of the Board of Education (1) if he will consider the advisability of the Prime Minister's speech in the House of Commons on. the Peace Treaty being read by the headmaster to the pupils in the schools of the Kingdom, and afterwards that it should be printed and issued to the schools in order that pupils could have access to it on future occasions;

(2) if he will consider the advisability of the Peace Treaty being issued as a textbook in the schools, particularly in view of the fact that this Treaty should be read by every member of the rising generation, in order that they may be familiar with the charter of the new world that was brought about by the sacrifices of our fighting forces and those of our Allies?


I am obliged to the hon. Member for his suggestions in these questions standing in his name. I am doubtful as to their practicability, but I will consider the matter.
