HC Deb 25 July 1871 vol 208 cc217-8

asked the Vice President of the Council of Education, Whether, after the recent decision in the case of Emanuel Hospital, it is the intention of the Endowed Schools Commissioners to proceed with such of the schemes in the provinces as have met with opposition, or whether they are prepared to re-consider them, with a view to giving satisfaction to those whose interests are affected thereby?


said, in reply, that the Commissioners would proceed to carry out the Act as they had endeavoured to do up to the present time, and, if any rival schemes were proposed, they would give such opportunity for the expression of opinion as the Act provided, and consider any objections which might be made. In the case of the Emanuel Hospital the scheme proposed by the Commissioners and approved by the Government had been dissented from by the House of Lords, but that circumstance did not in the slightest degree affect the position of the Commissioners in carrying out the Act.
