§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH
asked the Vice President of the Privy Council, Whether it is proposed to proceed with any opposed schemes of the Endowed Schools Commissioners before the Select Committee, whose appoint- 155 ment he intends to move, have made their Report on the working of the Endowed Schools Act?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER,
in reply, said, that neither the Endowed Schools Commissioners nor the Education Department were of opinion that the appointment of a Select Committee ought to prevent their proceeding with schemes for the reform of endowed schools in fulfilment of the Act. To hang up all opposed schemes would stop the work altogether, for there was scarcely any reform which would not be opposed by some one, especially if he knew that his opposition must be successful.
