§ MR. WILSON-TODD (York, E. R., Howdenshire)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, having regard to the fact that between the date of the passing of the Education Bill and that of its coming into force, the term of 202 office of certain existing School Boards will lapse, will some arrangement be made when the said Bill reaches the Committee stage empowering such School Boards to continue in office up to the date of the Bill coming into force, in order to obviate the expense and trouble of re-elections for such a short period.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I am well aware of the importance of the point raised by my hon. friend but I cannot say more than that it will not be overlooked by the Government.
