MR. JAMES LOWTHER (Kent, Thanet)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether he will explain why a body of private individuals conducting an educational agitation have been allowed to hold their meetings in one of the offices of the Board of Education, and have, with the assistance of permanent officers of the Department, had access to official documents which were not generally accessible, and will such practices be put a stop to in future.
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (SIR J. GORST,) Cambridge University
I am desired to reply that the terms of the Question are not sufficiently specific to enable an answer to be given; but that if the right hon. Gentleman will give notice of a further Question of a more definite character, all the information which the Board of Education possess shall be given to him.
MR. JAMES LOWTHER
Perhaps I may relieve the right hon. Gentleman of 996 lengthened inquiry if I ask has Sir George Kekewich personally taken part in these proceedings?
