HC Deb 28 February 1921 vol 138 c1458W

asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware of the strong feeling engendered among the working classes of Northumberland and all over the country because of the suspension of the Education Act of 1918; and will he press for the immediate putting into operation of the provisions of that Act?


The Education Act, 1918, is not suspended. The principle on which the Board's administration of the Education Acts is being conducted under the present financial conditions is explained in the Board's Circular 1190, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
