§ MR. TALBOT (Oxford University)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he has received a request from the Town Council of Aberavon, asking for permission to withdraw the request they had previously made for the formation of a School Board; and whether he is prepared to accede to that request?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Mr. ACLAND, York, W.R., Rotherham)
The Town Council of Aberavon passed a resolution for a School Board on the 9th June, and an Order was accordingly issued on the 20th June. The day after the Order had been issued the Town Council passed another resolution asking the Department to withdraw their Order till the Town Council had an opportunity of further considering the matter. The Department, after full consideration, decided that the Order could not be withdrawn.
