§ MR. KING (Cheshire, Knutsford)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board in the case of Mr. Joseph Wheeler, formerly school attendance officer for the Knutsford district of the Bucklow board of guardians, who resigned early in 1904 and died on 25th November in that year, why the Local Government Board has not yet made the order for payment to his widow of the amount due to him under Section 19 of the Second Schedule of The Education Act, 1902; and when such order will be made.
§ MR. JOHN BURNS
The matter has been under consideration in connection with a general Order which the Local Government Board propose to issue under the enactment referred to. I hope that the Order will be issued very shortly.
