§ LORD BALCARRES (Lancashire, Chorley)
To ask the President of the Board of Education, if the managers of a certified efficient school under the new Clause 3 (1) (b) of the Education Bill will be free to enter into agreements, which teachers may be prepared to accept, on the subject of religious instruction.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The managers of a certified efficient school, receiving neither State-aid nor rate-aid, will not be under the provisions of the Bill that relate to schools receiving either or both of those forms of public money.
