HC Deb 04 April 1895 vol 32 c923
MR. WILLIAM SMITH (Lancashire, N., North Lonsdale)

I beg to ask the Parliamentary Charity Commissioner with regard to the inquiry which was held by Mr. Hope in April 1893, into the present position of Town Bank Grammar School, Ulverstone, and the further inquiry by Mr. Coon in November 1894, when a scheme was presented which had been drawn by representatives of the principal public bodies in Ulverstone, and which scheme had been approved by the inhabitants generally, will he explain why the Commissioners have hitherto failed to either approve of such scheme or issue a scheme of their own; whether they are aware of the great inconvenience this delay causes to the inhabitants who are under the necessity of sending their children daily to schools at the neighbouring town of Barrow-in-Furness; and when the Commissioners intend to issue a scheme?


The Commissioners have sent, for the consideration of the Governors, a draft of a Scheme prepared by them upon consideration of the Report made to them in the matter by their Assistant Commissioner in December last.
