HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 cc2051-2W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, before confirming the new scheme for the administration of the charitable trust known as the Crossley and Porter Orphan House and School at Halifax, he will take steps to safeguard the children between the ages of two and eight so that they may not be deprived of the benefits of the charity?


The scheme has now been confirmed by Act of Parliament which received the Royal Assent on the 3rd June, and it is, therefore, too late for me to reconsider its provisions.
