HC Deb 07 April 1876 vol 228 cc1410-1

asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether he can now state how soon after the Easter Recess he will be able to introduce the Government measure dealing with Primary Education?


I have every hope, Sir, unless unforeseen circumstances should occur, of being able to introduce the Government Bill with respect to Primary Education in the first or second week of May. I may mention, at the same time, that the Government measure was ready for introduction to the House at the beginning of the Session, and that we have only refrained from bringing it forward because it is for the advantage of Public Business to avoid, if possible, crowding the Paper with Government Business.
