HC Deb 03 May 1906 vol 156 c724
MR. CROOKS (Woolwich)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education whether under the Education Bill it is proposed to give the authorities control over endowments which are for apprenticeship; if so, will an amending clause be inserted safe-guarding such endowments for apprenticeship.


It is hardly possible to explain the provisions of the Bill satisfactorily within the the limits of an Answer, and there will ample opportunity during the Committee stage. I may, however, assure the hon. Member that the Board are giving careful attention to the question of apprenticeships.
