§ MR. SUMMERS (Huddersfield)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education when the Education Code, which was laid upon the Table in dummy on 10th March, will be in the hands of Members; and whether the days which have already run will form part of the statutory period during which it must lie upon the Table before it acquires the force of law?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir W. HART DYKE,) Kent, Dartford
The Code will, I hope, be ready for distribution before the House rises for Easter. It is not proposed to take any 1515 action thereon until Parliament and the country have had sufficient time to study and discuss its provisions.
