HC Deb 27 July 1888 vol 329 cc673-4
MR. A. H. DYKE ACLAND (York, W.R., Rotherham)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he can now state what additional assistance is being provided to the Charity Commissioners to enable them to carry out the further inspection and examination of endowed and other secondary schools?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

The Charity Commissioners are engaged in the inspection of the working of their schemes without any addition to their staff, and it is not proposed to throw any other duties of the kind suggested upon them; but I understand that the Education Department have the whole subject under consideration, with a view to redeeming the pledges given at an earlier period of the Session.
