§ MR. HUMPHREYS OWEN (Montgomeryshire)
On behalf of the hon. Member for East Denbighshire, I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, if he is aware that the scheme framed for the County of Denbigh, under the Welsh Intermediate Education Act, 1889, provides that a certain number of local county school governors shall in each case be appointed by the School Boards of the district within which each county school is situate; viz., on the local governing bodies of each of the county schools of Llangollen, Ruthin, Denbigh, Llanrwst, Abergele, and Wrexham, the School Hoards in the respective districts appoint four, and in the case of Ruabon six, school governors; and whether, as the Education Bill now before the House proposes to abolish School Boards, he will state in what manner he proposes that the members of the local governing bodies now appointed by the School Boards shall in future be appointed.
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
This matter was mentioned yesterday in the debate on the clause, and will be considered by the Government.
