HC Deb 30 July 1906 vol 162 c469

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education under what statute, or by what authority, a parent has now a right to demand free education for his child in a public elementary school, inasmuch as Section 5 of the Free Education Act of l89l was repealed by the Education Act of 1902.


When Section 5 of the Elementary Education Act of 1891 was repealed, there was substituted for it an equivalent provision in Paragraph 5 of the Third Schedule of the Education Act of 1902. I think the hon. Member will find that this fully safeguards the right in question.
