§ *MR. LEUTY
I beg to ask the hon. Member for the Thirsk and Malton Division, as representing the Charity Commissioners, whether a scheme has been fully prepared for some time for the reorganisation of the Leeds Grammar School Charity, and if so, what is the nature of the opposition that has hitherto prevented the scheme being put in operation; whether he is aware that a similar scheme has been working very successfully for some time in connection with the Bradford Grammar School; and if anything can be done to extend to Leeds the benefit of such a reform?
THE PARLIAMENTARY CHARITY COMMISSIONER (Mr. GRANT LAWSON, York, Thirsk and Malton)
The Charity Commissioners some time ago submitted a scheme for the Leeds Grammar School to the Education Department, and it is to that Department that inquiry should be addressed as to the opposition to the scheme and the further steps necessary to its progress. I am aware that the Bradford Grammar School is now working with conspicuous success under a scheme framed like that for the Leeds Grammar School under the provisions of the Endowed Schools Acts.
