§ Mr. JOEL
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the statement of his chief medical officer emphasising the need for the national development of physical training, culture and guidance for girls of all classes in this country; and whether he proposes to take any action to provide such development?
Sir H. YOUNG
The answer to the first part of my hon. Friend's question is in the affirmative. With regard to the second part my hon. Friend is aware that action in many forms in the direction indicated is now taken alike by public authorities and voluntary bodies and, so far as the matter lies within my responsibility, such action has my full encouragement.
