§ SIR WILLIAM ANSON (Oxford University)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education how soon the House will be in possession of the Amendments, or any of them, which the Government propose to make in the Education Bill.
§ MR. BIRRELL
I will see that the Government's new provisions in respect of Clause 4 will appear amongst the Amendments circulated on Saturday morning.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR (City of London)
asked if, to afford opportunity for consideration of the Amendments before entering upon discussion of Clause 4 and to allow notice of Amendments to the Amendments, should such appear desirable, the Government proposals could be made known to the House on Friday.
§ SIR H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
said this was a reasonable request, and he would do his best to have the Amendments to the clause put on the Paper on Thursday night. But, of course, he could give no definite promise.
