HC Deb 14 May 1903 vol 122 c677

To ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether in the event of the managers of a voluntary school in a non-school board district passing a resolution, prior to the appointed day for the area in which the school is situated, to transfer the school to the local education authority, under Section 23 of The Education Act, 1870, and conforming with all the necessary conditions of such transfer, the local education authority would be empowered to accept the transfer without reference to Section 8 of The Education Act, 1902, and to conduct the school as a council school from the appointed day.

(Answered by Sir William Anson.) As the transfer could not be completed before the appointed day, the provisions of Section 8 must necessarily apply to such case.
