§ Colonel BURGOYNE
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to a pamphlet entitled, Hygiene of Food and Drink, issued by the Board of Education; whether it is by his instructions that this piece of teetotal propaganda has been printed and circulated; and under what powers the distribution has been made at the public expense?
Mr. H. LEWIS
The syllabus in question, which is a revised edition of one issued by the Board in 1908, was prepared and printed by my right hon. Friend's direction. It has been placed on sale (price 2d.). It was circulated to local education authorities in accordance with the Board's usual practice in the case of documents containing suggestions for teachers.
