§ Mr. MERRIMAN
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he can state, with respect to the City of Manchester, how many school children under the age of nine and between the ages of nine and 16, respectively, have been notified as suffering from infectious discuses since last September; whether any and, if so, how many deaths have resulted: whether any school children have been certified during that period as mentally deficient as the result of infectious diseases previously contracted: and how many school teachers have been absent from duty owing to infectious diseases during the same period?
§ Lord E. PERCY
I am afraid that I do not possess the information for which my hon. and learned Friend asks, but it is possible that the local health and education authorities might be able to furnish him with some particulars.
