HL Deb 20 July 1888 vol 329 c29

asked the Lord President of the Council, Whether the Education Department are of opinion that any question remains to be determined as to the obligations of the Mercers' Company towards the school endowments of West Lavington and Horsham; whether any scheme under the Endowed School Acts is in progress with reference to Dauntsay's School at West Lavington; and whether any such scheme has been submitted to the Education Department relative to the Horsham Grammar School?


, in reply, said, that the original scheme with regard to West Lavington had been abandoned, but the Mercers' Company had behaved with great liberality in the matter, and it was hoped that a satisfactory scheme would soon be carried out. With regard to Horsham Grammar School, a Report had been presented to the Education Department. He did not know whether it had reference to the Mercers' Company, but, at all events, no conclusion had yet been come to, but it was under consideration.

House adjourned at half past Six o'clock, to Monday next, a quarter before Eleven o'clock.
