HC Deb 27 November 1906 vol 165 c1432

I beg to ask the hon. Member for the Elland Division of Yorkshire, as representing the Charity Commissioners, whether, seeing that the Lytham charities (Lancashire) were left for the schooling of the poor children of Lytham, and that the ratepayers of that parish are paying by means of the poor rate for the elementary education of the children of the parish, he will consider the advisability of arranging that the income derivable from the charity, or a portion of it, shall be paid to the overseers for the purposes of the trust, viz., in relief of the cost of elementary education.

MR. TREVELYAN (Yorkshire, W.R., Elland)

The hon. Member appears to be referring to the Lytham School Charities, the jurisdiction over which was transferred 30th April 1903 to the Board of Education under the Board of Education Act 1899 and the Board of Education (Powers) Orders in Council 1900 to 1902. Any Question relating to these charities should therefore be addressed to the President of the Board of Education.
