To ask the President of the Local Government Board, when the† See (4) Debates, cxix., 375.‡ See (4) Debates, cxix., 1442, and cxx., 899.544 Local Government Board will issue the regulation required by Section 23 (4) of the Education Act, 1902.
(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) The regulations have been prepared and I have been in communication with the Board of Education respecting them. I think it may be desirable that some representatives of the local authorities concerned should see the regulations before they are finally settled, but I hope they may be issued shortly.
