HC Deb 09 December 1890 vol 349 c761
MR. MUNDELLA (Sheffield, Brightside)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether the governing body of Christ's Hospital has been appointed, and when the names will be gazetted?

MR. J. W. LOWTHER (Cumberland, Penrith)

Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will allow me to answer this question. The time fixed by the scheme for Christ's Hospital, for the completion of the body of almoners, has been extended by an Order of the Charity Commissioners to the 15th inst.; and the like time for the completion of the body of governors so constituted (in which body these almoners are included) has been similarly extended to the 1st of January, 1891. No provision is made in that scheme for the publication in the London Gazette, or otherwise, of the names of the persons appointed in pursuance of the scheme to be governors or almoners.
