HC Deb 03 March 1885 vol 294 c1910

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council, If it is the fact that doubts have arisen as to the legal position of the Croydon School Board in consequence of the recent incorporation of the Municipal Borough of Croydon; and, if such be the case, whether, having regard to the serious difficulties which may arise, particularly as regards the proceedings of the School Board and the other local authorities in the matter of the School Board finances and prosecutions, he will take steps to remove any such doubts by immediate legislation.


in reply, said, that, taking into consideration the difficulties that might arise, it was proposed to consult the Law Officers of the Crown on the matter.
