§ Sir ARTHUR GRIFFITH-BOSCAWEN
asked whether the right hon. Gentleman's attention has been called to the Caerphilly School case; whether he is aware that this school is a Church charity, and that in 1906 the Board of Education refused to sanction a scheme for its use proposed by the trustees, and that after years of litigation the Courts decided a few days ago that the scheme put forward by the National Society on behalf of the trustees should be proceeded with; and if he can say how much has been expended in costs in fighting the proposals of the trustees of this Church school?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I cannot accept the statement of facts contained in the second part of the question. I am afraid it is impossible, within the limits of an answer, to set them out, but I am circulating a further answer with the Votes. The Board have not been represented in the proceedings, and I have no knowledge of the amount of coats incurred.
§ Sir A. GRIFFITH-BOSCAWEN
Will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to ascertain the amount of money spent in costs fighting this case?
