§ MR.YOXALL (Nottingham, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether the Board now propose to withdraw the particular regulations for education other than elementary which prescribe fees and restrict the proportion of free places; and, if so, whether this withdrawal is to be effected by Minute operating during the currency of the existing issue of the Board's book of regulations for such schools.
§ SIR WILLIAM ANSON
I think that the hon. Member is mistaken as to the character of the regulations. Regulation 23 of the Secondary School Regulations is of a very general character, and it prescribes no minimum fee. There is no regulation fixing a minimum number of free places. No modification of the regulations, therefore, appears to be necessary.
