The idea of part-time education for all was still very much in the foreground of Sidney Webb's mind (and the minds of others) in 1904. Mrs. Webb's diary for April 20 records1 that, at a dinner party to-day "Sidney . . . backed up by the Bishop [of Stepney,] Wells [H. G.], and Shaw [Bernard], gave an elaborate argument in favour of our half-time scheme for boys." But early next year the idea of secondary education for all sprang full-fledged to birth at the annual Congress of the Labour Party held at Liverpool
in January 1905.
