§ MR. BATTY LANGLEY (Sheffield, Attercliffe)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he will state what will be the position of evening continuation classes under the management of such bodies as Polytechnics and Young Men's Christian Associations in the event of the Education Bill of 1901 becoming law; and will it be allowable for the new local educational authorities, which are to be created under the Bill, to aid such classes as are now carried on under the management of these institutions and are in receipt of Government Grants under the Evening Continuation Code.
§ *SIR J. GORST
The Bill now before Parliament does not in any way affect these classes. The answer to the second part of the question is in the affirmative.
