HC Deb 30 June 1891 vol 354 cc1864-5
MR. O. V. MORGAN (Battersea)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, with regard to the Elementary Education Bill, Clause 3, Section 3, whether, in the event of free education being demanded where there are no free schools, the compulsory clauses of "The Education Act, 1870," will remain in force until there is sufficient free school accommodation; and, if not, what is proposed to be done with children who demand free education before free school accommodation is provided?


It is not proposed to put the compulsory clauses of the Act of 1870 in force for the supply of free school accommodation for a year after the passing of the Act; and the hon. Member will observe that in the meantime the repeal of Section 10 of the Elementary Education Act, 1876, is not included in the measure.
