HC Deb 05 July 1906 vol 160 cc205-6

To ask the President of the Board of Education whether schools recognised under Clause 38, Part 5, of the Education Bill, 1906, as elementary schools being part of or held in the premises of an institution in which children are boarded, will be considered as exempt from the provisions of Parts 1 and 2 of the Bill; and will such schools with the sanction of the local education authority, receiving aid from the Parliamentary grant but not from the rates, be allowed to. control their own management, including the appointment of teachers and all questions of finance, as they do now under Clause 15 of the Education Act, 1902.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) I have nothing to add to the Answer I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for the Walton Division of Liverpool in regard to these points, and I mast decline to forestall by Question and Answer discussion upon points that may be raised in Committee in respect of later clauses of the Bill.
