HC Deb 05 August 1918 vol 109 c946W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether it is proposed that Clause 20 of the Education Bill shall come into force seven years, after the appointed day?


The Clause will come into force on the Appointed Day, which will not, I anticipate, be before the termination of the War. Clause 51, however, provides that the duty of the councils of counties, other than the London County Council, to establish certified schools for boarding and lodging physically defective and epileptic children shall not be operative for a period of seven years from the Appointed Day.
