HC Deb 17 March 1876 vol 228 c171

asked the Vice President of the Council, If it be true that, under an Order of the Education Department, a second School Board is being constituted, and a third contemplated, within the recently extended boundaries of the borough of Cardiff?


A private Act was passed, Sir, last Session for the extension of the boundaries of the municipal borough of Cardiff, in which, without the cognizance of the Education Department, provision was made that the portions of several civil parishes added to the borough should only be included in the borough for municipal purposes, and should be excluded from the jurisdiction of the school board. Hence a great difficulty has arisen which we do not see how we are to meet as the law now stands. I can, however, assure my hon. and gallant Friend that no Order has been issued by the Department for a second school board within the municipal borough of Cardiff, nor has it any intention at present to erect a third board within the borough. I fear the case can only be dealt with by further legislation.
