§ DR. MACNAMARA (Camberwell, N.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will defer the Second Reading of the London Education Bill until after the London County Council and the London School Board have had an opportunity of considering the proposed measure, bearing in mind the fact that both these bodies had risen for the Easter recess before the Bill was issued, and have not yet had an opportunity of discussing it
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I do not think it would be convenient or possible to alter the arrangements we have come to. But, of course, the important bodies to which the hon. Member has referred and other bodies will have an opportunity of expressing an opinion on the Bill between the Second Reading and the Committee stage.
