HC Deb 25 February 1929 vol 225 c1592W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has now had an opportunity of considering the Report of the Mental Deficiency Committee; whether he is aware that there is a desire amongst all persons interested in questions affecting mental deficiency, both voluntary societies and statutory bodies, to have an early opportunity of perusing the Report; and whether it will be possible to publish at least the portion of the Report dealing with the educational side of the Committee's work before the end of March?


Perhaps I may refer my right hon. and learned Friend to the reply which I gave last Thursday to a question by the hon. Member for North Tottenham (Mr. R. Morrison). For the reasons I then gave, I am afraid that the Report cannot be ready for publication before Easter.
