§ SIR JAMES RANKIN (Herefordshire, Leominster)
To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether there is any provision in the Education Bill, or elsewhere, to enable a local education authority to teach elementary subjects, paid for out of funds set apart for higher education, in evening continuation schools, without contravening the meaning of Clause 2 of the Bill.
(Answered by Mr. A. J. Balfour.) There is no such express provision. Whether any provision is in fact necessary, having regard to the words of Clause 2, is at present under consideration.
