HC Deb 31 May 1897 vol 49 cc1621-2
MR. A. HUMPHREYS-OWEN (Montgomery)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for the Thirsk Division whether, in the event of the Berriew School scheme being laid upon the Table and rejected, the sum of £224 0s. 10d. now standing to the credit of the Berriew School in the books of the Montgomeryshire County Governing Body, will sink into the General Fund, from which it was originally derived, or will be dealt with by a scheme of the Charity Commissioners; and, in the latter case, on what principles such scheme may be expected to be framed?


In the events which have happened the sum in question appears to have been severed from the General Fund, and there appears to be no provision in the Montgomeryshire County Scheme which can operate to bring the sum back to that fund in, the event mentioned. In that event it will become impossible to apply the sum in question in accordance with the County Scheme, and it will be proper that a cy-pres scheme for its future administration should be made by the Charity Commissioners. If the Charity Commissioners shall receive a sufficient application for such a scheme they will provide in framing the scheme Unit the interest of the Berriew District constituted by the County Scheme shall be regarded.
