§ Mrs. Gould
asked the Minister of Education when she intends to implement the assurances which were given on behalf of the Government during the passage of the Education Bill as to the extent of the delegation of educational duties and powers which will be exercisable by the excepted districts.
§ Miss Wilkinson
I cannot be expected to commit myself to adhere to any assurances that my predecessors may have given as to the manner in which they proposed to administer the various provisions of the Education Act. I can, however, say that I agree generally with the principles embodied in the reply given by my predecessor on 8th February last. I am sending a copy of the question and answer to my hon. Friend.
