HC Deb 16 April 1896 vol 39 c1046
MR. T. R. LEUTY (Leeds, E.)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, if it is intended that the Education Committee of a County Council, proposed to be established under the Education Bill, shall bring up its proceedings in full meeting of the County Council for the approval or otherwise of the latter?


The reports of the Education Committee to the County Council will be governed by the provisions of Section 82 (2) of the Local Government Act, 1888.


said, that the question that he asked was not based upon the wording of the Bill, but was as to the intentions of the Government which they desired to embody in the Bill. He appealed to the right hon. Gentleman whether, on a subject of such extreme importance, he was not entitled to an answer.


said, that the intention of the Government was that the reports of the Committees should be regulated by the general law.
