§ 51. Mr. ELLIS DAVIES
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is satisfied, in compliance with the provisions contained in Section 7 (4) of the Education Act, 1902, that the religious teaching given at Thorpe Church of England school, Surrey, is imparted in accordance with the provisions of the trust deed of the school?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. J. A. Pease)
I have no information as to whether the religious teaching given in the school in question is imparted in accordance with the provisions of the Trust Deed. I may remind the hon. Member that under Section 7 (3) of the Elementary Education Act, 1870, it is no part of the duty of His Majesty's inspector to inquire into any instruction in religious subjects given in a public elementary school.
