HC Deb 09 June 1873 vol 216 c635

asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether it is intended to reintroduce the scheme of the Endowed School Commissioners for David Hughes's Charity at Beaumaris, presented to Parliament last year but withdrawn in consequence of an Address being presented to Her Majesty from the House of Lords objecting to the scheme, because the bishop of the diocese was not named an ex officio governor?


in reply, said, that the other House had agreed to a Motion for an Address to the Queen, objecting to the scheme of the Endowed Schools Commissioners for the school in question, on the ground that the Commissioners had found themselves obliged, in deference to the opinion of the Law Officers of the Crown, not to name the Bishop of the diocese or the incumbent of the parish as an ex officio governor. The whole question was now being considered by the Select Committee upstairs, and would have to be considered by the House; and he did not, therefore, think it would be wise for the Commissioners to bring forward a scheme affecting it, until that consideration had been given.
