§ MR. CLOUGH (Yorkshire, W.R., Skipton)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the managers of the Church school at Kirkburton propose to appoint a Nonconformist assistant teacher in order to give Nonconformist religious teaching; and whether he will procure for the information of the House a copy of the syllabus for that Nonconformist religious teaching and a list of the tests that they propose to apply so as to ascertain whether or not that teacher believes in such instruction.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Mr. LOUGH,) Islington, W.
I understand that the promoters of the new voluntary school at Kirkburton propose to provide facilities for those children whose parents do not desire them to receive denominational instruction, but my right hon. friend thinks it would be premature to endeavour to obtain the information desired at this stage of the proceedings.
