HC Deb 08 August 1901 vol 99 c58

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that the Londonderry District Council No. 2 adopted the Compulsory Clauses of the Education Act, and the local authorities appointed their portion of the school attendance committee over four months ago, and, seeing that the Commissioners of National Education have not yet appointed their portion of this committee, can he state the cause of the delay, and will steps be taken to have the Act put into force in the district referred to.


The Commissioners appointed five persons to act on the school attendance committee of this district on the 16th July, and the appointments were at once notified to all parties concerned. The enforcement of the Act rests with the local authority.
