§ SIR LYON PLAYFAIR (Leeds, S.)
asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, If the Department are now prepared to approve the scheme for the Leeds Grammar School, submitted by the Charity Commissioners on June 22, 1887; whether any objections have been made to the scheme by the Town Council, or other Public Bodies, or leading inhabitants of Leeds; whether the scheme is opposed by the Trustees, and whether mainly on the ground that the scheme sets apart a sum of £500 per annum as a provision for the education of girls; and, whether the total endowment of this school is upwards of £4,500 per annum, being more than £20 per head to every scholar that is educated in the school?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT (Sir WILLIAM HART DYKE) (Kent, Dartford)
The statements in my right hon. Friend's Question are substantially correct; but there are points outstanding on which all parties interested are not in agreement: and I am not at present able to say that a definite decision has been arrived at.
