HC Deb 16 June 1881 vol 262 c749

Order for Committee read.


said, he did not propose to ask the House to proceed further with this measure. He found that pauper and quasi-pauper children were sufficiently provided for by existing legislation. There remained, however, the strong claim of these afflicted children generally to a participation in the education grants. In all other civilized countries a generous provision was made for their training by the State, and he trusted that at some future and not distant period their case would receive the attention of the House. He begged to move that the Order be discharged.

Motion agreed to.

Order discharged; Bill withdrawn.
