§ 11. Colonel Sir CHARLES YATE
asked the President of the Board of Education how many male inspectors of physical education are now employed, and how many hours a week are devoted to the physical education of boys in elementary and secondary schools respectively?
§ Mr. TREVELYAN
There are at present one male staff inspector and two other male inspectors of physical training employed by the Board. Neither the Code nor the Regulations for Secondary Schools prescribe the number of hours in each week that should be devoted to physical exercises. In public elementary schools the time varies, as a rule, from one to one and a half or two hours. In secondary schools one or two periods a week are generally given to physical exercises in addition to any time given to organised games.
