§ 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.
§ MR. BIRRELL
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.
