§ Mr. SUMMERBELL
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he has received representations from the County Councils Association, which is representative of all county councils, asking him to concede the advantage-of section 3 of the Education (Administrative Provisions) Act, 1007?
§ Mr. BURNS
The County Councils Association communicated with me with regard to my receiving a deputation as to this matter, but I did not think it necessary to do this. As I have intimated in reply to previous questions, I am prepared to consider the representations made to me by any county council with regard to the circumstances of their particular case.
