§ MR. CHARLES M'ARTHUR () Liverpool, Exchange
To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, under the Education Bill, the sanction of the Board of Education will be required to alterations in trust deeds which have the effect of modifying the character of the religious instruction to be given in the school. or of giving an appeal to the Bishop or other ecclesiastical authority, where no provision for such an appeal previously existed; if so, from what date the alterations will be subject to confirmation; and, if not, whether he proposes to add any provision of the character suggested.
(Answered by Mr Balfour.) The Bill gives no power to alter trust deeds except as regards the appointment of managers. Any other alterations of trust deeds must be made under the law as it now exists.
