THE LORD PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL AND SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (The Earl of KIMBERLEY)
My Lords, there is a Bill for confirming a Provisional Order, made by the Education Department under the Act of 1870, to enable the London School Board to enforce the provisions of the Lands Clauses Act. It is extremely necessary the correction should be made. I have communicated with my noble Friend the Chairman of Committees, and he is willing I should move under the circumstances—That the Sessional Order of the 13th March last, That no Bill originating in this House confirming any Provisional Order or Provisional Certificate shall be read a first time after Thursday the 11th day of May next, be dispensed with in respect of a Bill to confirm a Provisional Order made by the Education Department under the Elementary Education 1752 Act, 1870, to enable the School Board for London to put in force the Lands Clauses Acts.
§ Motion agreed to.
