HC Deb 23 June 1902 vol 109 c1373
MR. HERBERT LEWIS (Flint, Boroughs)

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the periods for winch the Education Committees of County and Borough Councils are to be appointed will be specified in the schemes which, under Clause 12 of the Education Bill, are to be framed by the Councils and approved by the Board of Education; and, if not, whether he will propose an Amendment stating the time for which these Committees are to be constituted; and whether it is intended that all the Members shall retire in a body at the expiration of their office or that a certain number shall retire each year.

(Answer.) It is intended that all these matters should be provided for by the schemes.—(Treasury.)

MR. TREVELYAN (Yorkshire, W. R. J Elland)

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the proceedings of Education Committees appointed under Clause 12 of the Education Bill are to be reported to and will require confirmation by the local education authority.

(Answer.) I have already said that the Committee will have great weight with the Council, but the ultimate control will be in the hands of the Council and not of the Committee of the Council.—(Treasury.)
