asked the Minister of Education (1) for what purpose a course for teachers was held at the Midland Agricultural College, Loughborough, from 5th April to 12th April, 1949; and what was the cost to the taxpayer;(2) how many recent courses for teachers have been held confined to instruction in the designing and technique of flower arrangement in the home.

Two short courses in the design and technique of flower arrangement have been organised by my Department, one from 26th August to 1st September, 1948, and the other from 5th April to 12th April this year. Their object was to enable teachers of adult classes in art, crafts, domestic science and horticulture to undertake experimental work in this field. The cost of the first course was about £162 and that of the second about £104.
