HL Deb 19 June 1894 vol 25 c1447

THE BISHOP OF ST. ASAPH moved— That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty praying Her to withhold Her assent to the following portion of the Denbighshire Education Scheme: Clause 87, Sub-section (b), from the word 'boarding-house' to the end; and the whole of Sub-section (c).


My Lords, as I have informed the right rev. Prelate, the Government do not intend to put the House to the trouble of another discussion and Division upon this question. I do not know that the result of the Division we have just passed through would have encouraged the Government to do so even if it had any other views. The fact is, we feel bound to insert clauses of this description in these Schemes as embodying in some faint degree the feelings of the locality as suggested by the Joint Committee. The Commissioners introduced this Scheme in the belief that it embodied the feeling of the locality in this case; but, as your Lordships have already had a discussion, about six weeks ago, on substantially the same question with an absolutely conclusive Division, I do not think it necessary to renew or repeat the proceeding.

Motion agreed to; and the said Address ordered to be presented to Her Majesty by the Lords with White Staves.
