HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 c2487W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether it is his intention to make any and, if so, what arrangements for the care and education of children who are so mentally defective that they cannot be received in any of the existing special or M.D. schools?


A Circular is already in draft, and will, I hope, be issued shortly, urging local education authorities to improve their arrangements for the ascertainment of and notification to the local authority, under the Mental Deficiency Act, 1913, of those mentally defective children who are not suitable for admission to special schools.
