§ MR. TOMLINSON (Preston)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he can now state when he expects to introduce a Bill for exempting elementary schools from the payment of rates?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE,) Tower Hamlets, St. George's
The question has already been twice answered within a short time. The Government can make no statement as to the time when the Bill referred to will be introduced by my right hon. Friend; probably not till the Public Business is more advanced than at present.
