HC Deb 26 February 1885 vol 294 c1414

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council, Whether the stipulations of the Act of Parliament, which requires that an Education Scheme should remain upon the Table of the House sixty days, have been complied with as regards the Kelsick School, at Ambleside, the Scheme having been laid upon the Table of the House on the 23rd October, notice of objection having been given for the 17th November and 9th December; and, whether, though Parliament was adjourned on the 6th December, there is not still a period during which the Scheme may be considered as lying upon the Table of the House?


The scheme relating to this school was laid upon the Table of both Houses of Parliament on the 23rd of October last; and I am advised that, having lain not less than two months during the same Session of Parliament, the conditions of the statute have been fulfilled, and that I have no further discretion in the matter.
