HC Deb 04 June 1891 vol 353 c1612

I intended to ask the hon. Member for Penrith (Mr. J. W. Lowther) whether it is a fact, as stated on page 16 of a pamphlet entitled St. Paul's School and its Scandals, by Mr. James Beal, Member of the London County Council, that the High Master of St. Paul's School has for several years drawn from the funds of the Charity large sums in excess of what he is allowed to draw by the scheme passed by Parliament in 1876 and 1879, and which sum for the year 1889 is there alleged to amount to £640 6s. 8d; and whether the Charity Commissioners will take steps to inquire into the truth of these allegations? I have, however, been requested to postpone the question until Monday.
