§ MR. HARWOOD (Bolton)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether, in view of the fact that the Board has issued an order for the election of foundation managers of the Birchet's Green National School, Berkshire, in which it is stipulated that the two representative managers are to declare themselves members of the Church of England, he will state what is the meaning attached by the Board to the expression member of the Church of England.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Sir William ANSON, Oxford University)
The Board do not inquire what is the precise meaning which a manager who is required by the order to be a member of the Church of England affixes to that expression. They are satisfied with his written assurance that he possesses the qualifications required by the order.
