HC Deb 20 April 1921 vol 140 cc1902-3W

asked the President of the Board of Education what provision is made by the Department of. Education for the teaching of simple economics, so as to preclude the perpetuation of industrial troubles mainly due to ignorance on this matter?


Instruction in economics is given in a considerable number of technical and continuation schools, and in a substantial proportion of the university tutorial classes. The subject is also taught in many secondary schools, particularly those which provide commercial courses.
