HC Deb 20 August 1895 vol 36 c384
MR. HERBERT LEWIS (Flint Boroughs)

I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council what is the present position of the scheme for the constitution of the Central Board of Intermediate Education in Wales, and whether it is possible to pass the scheme into law in the course of the present Session?


This scheme has been approved by the Committee of Council, and is now before Parliament. The Statute requires that it should lie on the Table of both Houses for two months in the same Session of Parliament, during which time an address may be presented by either House, praying Her Majesty to withhold her consent from all or part of the scheme. It is therefore impossible that the scheme can be approved by Her Majesty in Council during the present Session. ["Hear, hear!"]
