§ SIR RICHARD TEMPLE (Surrey, Kingston)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he can say for how many of the new secondary schools, to be established under the Welsh Intermediate Education Act of 1889, have Schemes been drawn up and sanctioned; how many of these new schools are at the present time in full working order; and what provision, if any, has been made, under the above Act, for staffing the newly-established secondary schools with properly trained teachers?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Mr. ACLAND,) York, W.R., Rotherham
No Scheme under the Welsh Intermediate Education Act has yet been sanctioned by the Queen in Council. Three Schemes have been framed and submitted by the Charity Commissioners to the Education Department, of which two have been approved by the Department. There Are, therefore, no new schools in working order, and it is not possible to state what provision has been made for teachers.
