§ DR. FARQUHARSON (Aberdeenshire, W.)
asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, having regard to the fact that 11 years ago a Royal Commission reported that—For a thorough reform in the management and discipline of Christ's Hospital, we think that its removal from London is indispensable,and that the Charity Commissioners have, after exhaustive inquiries, reported that more boarders and 1,000 additional day scholars might receive the benefits of the school if the recommendations of the Royal Commission were adopted, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to take action in the matter?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT (Sir WILLIAM HART DYKE) (Kent, Dartford)
The scheme of the Charity Commissioners providing for the objects set forth in the Question received the sanction of the Education Department on the 15th of June. Subsequently a Petition was presented to Her Majesty in Council, and the scheme will have to be considered by the Judicial Committee. If the Petition is dismissed, the scheme will be laid before Parliament in the usual way.
§ MR. MUNDELLA (Sheffield, Brightside)
asked when the question was likely to go before the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council?
