§ COLONEL LOCKWOOD (Essex, Epping)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, if he intends to proceed this Session with the Teachers' Registration Bill?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
said he was very anxious to proceed with this Bill, but he confessed he did not see any prospect of doing so before the close of the Session.
§ COLONEL LOCKWOOD
asked, if the Bill were made non-contentious could he see his way to proceed with the Bill?
§ SIR J. GORST
Oh, yes, certainly, if the Bill could be treated as entirely non-contentious, but I have always been stopped after Twelve o'clock when I have tried to take the Second Reading. [Laughter.]
