§ MR. F. E. SMITH (Liverpool, Walton)
To ask the President of the Board of Education whether schools recognised under Clause 38, Part V., of the Education Bills as elementary schools which are part of, or held in premises of, an institution, in which children are boarded will be considered as exempt from those clauses in Part I. which provide for the appointment of teachers and general management by the local education authority, and from those clauses in Part II. which give the local authority power of control over finance.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) In reply to the concluding paragraph of the Question, 20 I have to say that Part II. of the Bill will not be proceeded with. In reply to the rest of the Question, the reply is in the affirmative in the case of such schools under the clause as are continued as public elementary schools outside the local authority's control, and in the negative when they are continued as provided schools.
