HC Deb 28 March 1898 vol 55 c1090

I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he is aware that payments have been requested from candidates for labour certificates within the area of the Glusburn School Board and in the neighbouring districts; that the Clerk to the Glusburn Board has acted as secretary for the Glusburn and surrounding school authorities in the matter of labour certificate examinations, and has received these payments, and that the Glusburn School Board recently expressed approval of the charges; and that these charges have not been enforced in the Glusburn School District at the last three examinations because the teacher, believing them to be illegal, has declined to collect them, and is in consequence now being pressed by the Clerk to make good the loss; and can he state whether the Board or their Clerk have any power to enforce such charges?


The charges referred to have been made, but the Board have recently been informed that they must be discontinued.

Forward to
