HC Deb 17 July 1913 vol 55 c1425

asked the Prime Minister if it has been decided to abandon altogether for this Session the introduction of the Bill promised in the King's Speech for establishing a national scheme of education, and to introduce, in lieu thereof, a one-Clause Bill providing for temporary financial assistance to local education authorities; and, if so, whether the Government propose to introduce the larger measure without fail next Session?

51. Mr. KING

asked whether the Education Bill to be introduced next week will contain only one operative Clause; and whether the Bill is of this restricted character, because an effort will be made to pass it into law this Session?


My right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Education will make a full statement as to the policy of the Government with regard to education on Tuesday next, and I am not prepared to anticipate it.
