HC Deb 18 November 1926 vol 199 c1978W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the beneficial effects on animals in the London Zoological Gardens by the use of glass which enables the ultra-violet rays of the sun to reach them; and whether, in view of this successful experiment on animals, he will recommend local education authorities to provide similar glass in schools?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I understand that some preliminary tests and observations have been carried out among school children, but any general recommendation on the subject would be premature at this stage.
