HC Deb 16 July 1919 vol 118 c409W
Lieut.-Colonel PICKERING

asked the President of the Board of Education if, during the current financial year of the Board, he is prepared to waive the Regulation in the Code which requires every school to be open at least 400 times per year, in order to allow for an extra holiday as a means of celebrating the signing of Peace?


The answer is in the affirmative. I am sending a Circular to the local education authorities and school governing bodies on the subject.
