§ MR. LOUIS SINCLAIR (Essex, Romford)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board under which authority the district of Cann Hall will come, under the provisions of the Education Bill, seeing that Cann Hall has its own poor law officers, is incorporated with Leyton for sanitary purposes, and allied at present with Wanstead under the School Board.
(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) Cann Hall appears to be a parish in the Leyton Urban District. That district has a populations which, according to the last census, exceeds 20,000. Under the Bill the Urban District Council will be the local education authority throughout the district for the purposes of elementary education, and the Essex County Council for the purposes of higher education.
