HC Deb 28 May 1902 vol 108 c775
MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)

To ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he will state what would be the effect of the Education Bill upon an endowment which is sufficient, together with the Government grants, for the maintenance of a school in a borough of under 10,000 inhabitants; to what purpose would the endowment be diverted; and would the borough be liable for its share of the expense incurred by the proposed local education authority for educational purposes.

(Answer.) This is a pure question of law, on which the Board of Education cannot undertake to give advice.—(Board of Education.)
