§ DR. MACNAMARA (Camberwell, N.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he can explain why the Regulations for Evening Schools, which have recently been presented to Parliament,; and which supersede those set out in the Minute of 3rd July, 1901, do not contain the words "presented to Parliament pursuant to 33 and 34 Vic, c. 75, s. 97," and "to lie upon the Tables of both Houses for one month," which were endorsed on the original Regulations.
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
Because such words are not, in the opinion of the Board of Education, applicable to the Regulations.
§ DR. MACNAMARA
Does the Board of Education intend in future to issue Regulations of this character without submitting them to Parliament?
§ SIR JOHN GORST
The only Regulations which need by statute be laid on the Table are those which apply to public elementary schools.
