HC Deb 22 May 1857 vol 145 cc712-3

said, he wished to ask the hon. Member for North Staffordshire (Mr. Adderley) whether the Amendments introduced by him in the Industrial Schools Bill provide for the omission of all clauses authorizing any charge upon the poor rate?


said, that in deference to the opposition to this Bill, of which the noble Lord had been the chief author, every allusion to the boards of guardians, and every charge upon the poor rates, had been omitted from the Bill, with the single exception of a permissive clause enabling boards of guardians, with the sanction of the Poor Law Board, to make use of these schools.
