HC Deb 09 May 1902 vol 107 c1232

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether under the Education Bill, 1902, an elementary school entirely maintained by an endowment and by the Government grants will be subject to the inspection and control of the local education authority.

(Answer) The local education authority will be responsible for the secular education given in all public elementary schools in its area, and therefore will be entitled to inspect such schools.—(Treasury.)
