HC Deb 13 June 1872 vol 211 cc1689-90

asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether he proposes to introduce, in the present Session, a Bill to regulate the elections for School Boards; and, if so, whether such Bill will contain any provisions for the purpose of limiting the frequency of contests in parishes where the proposition to establish a School Board has been rejected?


, in reply, said, he hoped to be allowed very shortly to introduce a Bill regulating the election of school boards. What its provisions would be he could not state to the House until the Bill was brought forward; but he might explain that a provision already existed which prevented the ratepayers or town council from renewing the consideration of the propriety of establishing a school board within 12 months of the rejection of a similar proposition. He thought that provision adequate.
