EDUCATION IN WALES. In the course of the debate on the Add ress in the House of Commons on Tuesday, Sir G. Osborne Morgan said that he had placed on the paper an amendment relating to education in Wales, but it had been ruled out of order. He, therefore, wished to make a few general observations on the subjeet. The grievance of the Welsh with regard to education was that, while four-fifths of the population were Non- conformists, and in favour of undenominational educa- tion, there were none but Church schools in 627 dis- tricts, and the children were thus placed under pressure to desert the faith of their fathers No, r»o"). He appealed to the Vice-President of the Council to consider this grievance of Wales in anv legislation which he might introduce on the subject of education. Mr. Lloyd George contended that Wales was as much entitled to separate educational treatmeut as Scotland and Ireland. Mr. lIowellsaid that, as a Welshman, speaking hill own language, he was greatly amused at the state- ments made by^the right hou. baronet opposite. In the iKiuie of Welsh Unionism lie protested against any separate educational treatment of Wales. If Wales remained as was said, a nation of Noncon- formists, it was clear that the alleged proselvtism in Church Schools had not done much harm (hear, hear). After some remarks from Mr. Herbert Lewis, the Address was then agreed to.
