HC Deb 16 May 1878 vol 240 c27

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether the following extract from a letter lately sent to the Wigan School Attendance Committee by Mr. Cumin is to be understood as showing a change of intention since the favourable answer given in this House by Viscount Sandon on the 21st March in respect to the claim of teachers to be paid for making out the returns required to be furnished:— I am directed to refer you to paragraph 25 of the Minute which, in their Lordships' opinion, precludes the teachers of schools from demanding any fee for making the returns required under paragraph 8.


, in reply, said, that the letter referred to by the hon. Member, written by Mr. Cumin, was dated the 16th of March. That was five days before the answer given by his noble Friend (Viscount Sandon); and, therefore, his answer would not be affected by that letter.
