§ 75. Mr. CHARLES ROBERTS
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to a resolution adopted at a public meeting of inhabitants of Hampton-on-Thames, protesting against the Board of Education's proposal to vest permanently the building known as the Hampton English School, together with a part of the income of John Jones' Charity, in the vicar and church wardens of Hampton alone, thereby excluding the people of Hampton from any voice in the management of the building, which was erected partly by public subscriptions, and any control over the expenditure referred to such as they have had since 1837 up to the date of the temporary scheme made by the Board in the year 1910; and whether, in view of similar expressions of disapproval unanimously adopted by the local urban district council, he will reconsider this approval?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD Of EDUCATION (Mr. J. A. Pease)
On Friday last the Board received a deputation of the Hampton Urban District Council with reference to the matters mentioned in the question and are carefully considering the representations made respecting the draft scheme recently published under the Charitable Trusts Acts for the administration of the buildings and endowment of the English School Foundation.
