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