§ MR. TIMOTHY HEALY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if the recent Resolution of this House, declaring that public meetings should be permitted in schools in receipt of State aid will now be communicated to the Board of National Education in Ireland?
§ MR. JACKSON
I stated yesterday that I had no objection to communicate this Resolution to the Board of National Education in Ireland.
§ MR. H. GARDNER
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether it is intended by Subsection (c), Clause 3, of the Public Elementary Schools Bill, to forbid the discussion of the Disestablishment of the Church at public meetings in elementary schools authorised by the Bill?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR (who replied)
Unfortunately, both the officials of the Local Government Board are away from the House through ill-health, and I am afraid that without notes I am unable to answer the question. Perhaps the hon. Member will put the question down for Thursday.
§ MR. GARDNER
I see the Vice President of the Council (Sir W. Hart Dyke) present. Perhaps he will answer the question.
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir W. HART DYKE,) Kent, Dartford
I think this is a question that had better be dealt with when we come to discuss the Bill.
