§ MR. ALFRED DAVIES (Carmarthen Boroughs)
To ask the hon. Member for the Tonbridge Division of Kent, as a Charity Commissioner, if he will state why the scheme published in July, 1896, for the Cornwallis Charity for the parish of Llansadwrn, Carmarthenshire, was not adopted; and, in the event of that scheme being incorrect, why no fresh scheme has been brought forward earlier; and will he say when he expects the promised new scheme to be in the hands of the Parish Council of Llansadwrn, and what time that body will have for its consideration.
(Answer.) (1) The scheme to which the Question refers as published in 1896 was a scheme proposed to be made under The Welsh Intermediate Education Act, 1889. It was not proceeded with, because it was opposed. (2) The Commissioners awaited the result of the inquiry about to be conducted by their Assistant Commissioner in Llansadwrn and Llanwrda, before proposing a fresh scheme. (3) It is not possible to state at present when the new scheme, a draft of which is now being considered by the patron and the trustees, will be published. But there will be no unnecessary delay in the matter. (4) When the scheme is published, the Parish Council of Llansadwrn will receive a copy, and will have not less than a month for its consideration, and for making their observations upon it.—(Charity commission.)
