§ MR. BILL
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the terms of the reference to the Committee just appointed on Reformatory and Industrial Schools will include the consideration of the question of pensions or superannuation allowances for masters, matrons, and officers of the schools.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers-Douglas.) The Answer is in the negative. The terms of reference to the Committee, which the hon. and gallant Member will have seen in the Press notices, relate only to the provision of funds for the schools; and it is not proposed to extend the inquiry further.
