HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 cc1645-6W

asked the President of the Board of Education if his attention has been drawn to the fact, as stated on behalf of the Nottingham Education Committee at the Nottingham Summons Court, that 500 children in the town who left school at Christmas are still unemployed; and whether he is prepared to require the Nottingham Education Committee to provide educational instruction for these children?


My attention has not hitherto been called to this matter, but I am making inquiries.


The contribution card for the second half of 1924 is already with the printers, but in preparing the card for the first half of 1925, consideration will be given to the suggestion made by the hon. and gallant Member. I must, however, point out that the space available on the existing card is already used to its fullest extent, and that any increase in the dimensions of the card would cause serious inconvenience to employers and others who use filing cabinets for the storing of the cards.
