§ MR. KENYON (Denbigh, &c.)
asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a Bill for promoting intermediate education in Wales; and, if so, whether the Confiscatory Clauses of last year's Bill will be omitted in deference to the wishes of the Principality?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT (Sir LYON PLAYFAIR) (Leeds, S.)
(who replied) said, the question was so intimately mixed up with the Educational Endowment Act of 1869 and the Amending Acts now under consideration of a Select Committee that the Government were unable to promise that a Bill would be introduced this Session until they knew what changes might be recommended by the Committee. In those circumstances, he could not say in what respect the Bill to be introduced would differ from that of last year.
