HC Deb 08 June 1874 vol 219 cc1156-7

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council, Whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a Bill dealing with the subject of Endowed Schools; and, whether it is their intention to propose the prolongation of the powers of the existing Commission?


A Bill, Sir, dealing with the subject of endowed schools has been prepared, and will shortly be laid before Parliament. In reply to the second part of the Question, I fear I must beg the hon. Gentleman to excuse me from mentioning what any of the provisions of the measure will be before it is actually brought forward in Parliament by the Government.
