MR. ALFRED HUTTON (Yorkshire) W.R., Morley)

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury what steps the Government propose to take to re-enact the Education Act of 1901 for a further twelve months to ensure the continuance of the evening schools, science and art classes, and pupil teacher centres after the expiration of the Act of 1901; and whether its scope can be enlarged to permit of the establishment of new classes for the coining winter.

(Answered by Mr. A. J. Balfour.) A Bill is now before Parliament which will enable schools or classes dealt with by the legislation of last year to be continued.
