HL Deb 02 March 1909 vol 1 cc228-30

My Lords, I rise to ask the noble Viscount the Lord President of the Council a question of which I have given him private notice, and which has reference to the Motion standing in my name on the Paper for Wednesday of next week. I wish to ask whether the noble Viscount will lay on the Table any instructions given to Mr. Hamilton regarding the holding of a public Inquiry with respect to the Oxford Street Church of England School, Swansea; whether he will also lay on the Table the Report made by Mr. Hamilton to the Board of Education, with the notes of the evidence taken at the Inquiry and referred to in the decision of the Board; and, further, whether he will lay on the Table the decision come to by the Board of Education on the question.


My Lords, there will be no difficulty whatever in immediately laying on the Tables of both Houses nearly all the Papers mentioned by the noble Earl. The evidence, however, is very voluminous, and is not in print. But I will take care that the Notice of Inquiry, Mr. Hamilton's Report, and the Board of Education's decision of December 17 last are laid on the Table at once.

House adjourned at half-past Four o'clock, till to-morrow, a quarter past Four o'clock.
