MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether he will state whether the powers vested in the County Council under sub-Section (a) of Clause 13 of the Education Bill could under any circumstances, through the operation of sub-Section 7 of Clause 12 of the Bill, as amended, be applied to any parish or parishes in Wales or Monmouthshire.
§ SIR WILLIAM ANSON
The County Councils in Wales and Monmouthshire will have the powers given by sub-Section, (a), Clause 13 (1) of the Bill, with regard to expenses incurred under the Bill. But the provisions of Clause 13 of the Bill will not apply to money spent under the Welsh Intermediate Education Act, 1889. The effect of sub-Section (7) of Clause 12 of the Bill is merely to alter the constitution of the body who administer the Welsh Intermediate Education Act, not to alter the actual provisions of the Act.
