HC Deb 01 December 1902 vol 115 c848
MR. KENYON () Denbigh

I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General whether, in the event of an appeal to the Bishop of the diocese, under sub-Section (4) of Clause 7 of the Education Bill, proving to be in favour of the incumbent of the parish, he will have any legal power of asserting his position as against his co-manager; and if so, by what process.


The only reference to the Bishop, in my view of this Clause, will be on any question as to the nature of the religious teaching. On every other question—as to the management of the religious teaching, now it is to be given, and by whom—the managers will have full control, and no appeal will lie against this decision. If the managers should infringe the terms of the trust as regards the character of the religious instruction as defined by the deed itself, or by the Bishop on reference in terms of the deed, the proper remedy would be, as in the case of any abuse of a charitable trust, by an inforamtion in the name of the Attorney General.
