HC Deb 06 July 1904 vol 137 cc775-6
MR. SLACK (Hertfordshire, St. Albans)

To ask the hon. Member for Tonbridge, as Parliamentary Charity Commissioner, whether, before sanctioning and sealing the new scheme for the Whitstable Charities, he will so amend it that the endowment originally provided for the payment of teachers' salaries shall continue to be paid to the local education authority as provided by Section 13 of The Education Act, 1902.

(Answered by Mr. Griffith Boscawen.) The Commissioners do not understand that any payment has been made to the local education authority from this Charity; and whether any such payment ought under any circumstances to be made is a matter not for the Commissioners, but for the Board of Education. In the circumstances the Commissioners have nothing to add to their Answer of 1st July.†
