There was also a Scottish census: Census of Great Britain, 1851. Religious Worship, and Education. Scotland. Report and Tables B.P.P. 1854, (1764), vol. LIX, 301. The discussion that follows is confined to the England and Wales volume. The Voluntaryist position on state intervention is made clear in (Congregational Board of Education) Crosby-Hall Lectures on Education, London 1848. Views of those hostile to the census are expressed in the volumes of The Educator (ed. W J. Unwin) published from 1851.
