74 Dr. DAVIES
asked the President of the Board of Education, if it is his intention that the last school year for children shall be devoted to the practical rather than the academic requirements of the children; and, if so, will the decision as to the best type of education suitable for the locality be left to the local education authorities?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
Perhaps I may refer the hon. Member to Circular 1404, of which I am sending him a copy. Generally speaking, the type of instruction to be provided will be left to the discretion of the local education authorities.
