HC Deb 12 March 1925 vol 181 c1534W
Colonel DAY

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in view of the amount of juvenile unemployment, he will take steps to raise the age of compulsory school attendance in respect of children who have not obtained offers of employment, and at the same time make provision for school maintenance grants for children over the age of 14 years?


With regard to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to my statement in the House on the 24th February, and with regard to the second part, to Schedule VII of the Code.
