HC Deb 09 May 1944 vol 399 c1804
Mr. Ede

I beg to move, in page 12, line 35, at the end, to insert: the expenses of discharging any liability incurred by them or on their behalf or by or on behalf of any former managers or governors of the school or any trustees thereof for the purposes of establishing or carrying on the school. This Amendment should be read in connection with the Amendment to omit Sub-section (3) from Clause 105. The effect of it, with the addition of the later Amendment, is to throw on managers of any aided or special agreement school all liabilities incurred by them or their predecessors or trustees for the purpose of establishing or carrying on the school. The managers or governors of controlled schools will be free of any such liability, so that, if an aided or special agreement school subsequently becomes controlled, its liability will pass to the local education authority. I am sure that, in view of the altered status that the school would hold in the eyes of the denomination, it would be only right that this liability should pass on the status being altered.

Amendment agreed to.
