HC Deb 01 December 1902 vol 115 c835
MR. BRASSEY () Oxfordshire, Banbury

To ask the Secretary to the Board of Education if he will say whether, in the case of Church of England elementary schools built and maintained by landowners, where there is no trust deed, those who have built and maintained the schools will be able to nominate the four managers and to change them;will these schools be treated as denominational schools;and, if so, will he say under which Clauses of the Education Bill this is the case.

(Answered by Sir William Anson.) In the cases mentioned the owners can apply for an Order under Clause 11, sub-Section (2), of the Bill, and in their application can set forth the scheme of appointment or nomination of foundation managers which they desire to see adopted. In many cases landowners who have built and maintained denominational schools on their property have power to secure the permanence of their denominational character by themselves making a trust deed without using the powers given by the Bill.
