HC Deb 08 May 1896 vol 40 cc880-1
MR. LEWIS FRY (Bristol, N.)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether women will be eligible as members of the education authority under Sub-section (3) of Clause 1 of the Education Bill; and, if the question is open to doubt, whether he will introduce an Amendment in Committee to make it clear that they are so eligible?


Yes, Sir. The Committee of Council are advised by their legal advisers that there is no doubt about that.
