§ 27. Mr. McSHANE
asked the President of the Board of Education whether it is his intention to reintroduce the same Education Bill in the autumn that was recently withdrawn?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Sir Charles Trevelyan)
I am not at present in a position to add anything to the statement made by the Prime Minister on 25th June in regard to the proposals of the Government.
§ Mr. HARRIS
Does not the right hon. Gentleman realise how important it is that local authorities should know what 686 their position is likely to be in the autumn, as they are training students and putting up buildings in preparation for next year? Is it not important that they should have some more definite lead as to what is likely to be done?
