LLANDUDNO CHURCH SCHOOLS THE RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION DIFFICULTY. MANAGERS DEFYING THE COUNTY AUTHORITY. The Rev Llewelyn R. Hughes (Rector) pre- sided over a meeting of the managers of the Church Schools, at Llandudno, on Saturday afternoon, when a commulication was read from Mr Evan R. Davies, clerk to the Oarnarvon- dhdre Education Authority, in reply to a letter received from the Llandudno managers, stat- ing that he was authorised by the Chairman) of the Education Committee to point out that the decision of the Court of Appeal was to the effect that the education authority have no power to defray the expense of religious teach- ing in Non-provided Schools, and the whole of the teaching given ait the Llandudno Non- provided Schools, being outside the jurisdic- tion of the education authority, is such that the authority are no longer entitled to pay for. According to the official time table t'he religious instruction at the Uandudii. Non-iprovided Scliools- takes up 10 per cent, of the time during which school is arsemned and -held. Mr F. J. Sarson: I see they have now omitted the word "denominational," and onily mention religious teaching; it 6cemis like atheism. Rev J. Hughes: Tliey pay for religious in- struction jn their own Council; Schools and must pay for it in our schools. The Rector: Then say that they have power -to do that under the Gowper-Temple clause. Mr Richard Conway moved a resolution to the effect that the managers, having considered the letter, and without intending to be dis- courteous or to express any fi-naa decision on the matter, do not think that in the present un- certain state of the law they would be justi- fied in giving the statutory notice to the teach- ers, and for the -present they do not. intend t do so. Mr R. J. Williams asked what would he their responsibility as managers if they declined to give the notice. As a manager representing tihe ratepayers, he did not feel justified in taking the responsibility for teachers' salaries. The Rector; It has been stated that if the County Council pay the salaries they will not be surcharged. Mr R. J. Williams But suppose they won't pfty. I understand that they have triven notice to that effect. The Rector; But have they a lega.1 risht to give such a notice, that is a.n open question. Mr F. J. Sarson. in seconding the proposition said he thought it, was a most extraordinary1 attitude for the County Council to take up. If they paid for relio-ious teaching in one school, they should do the same in the other school; h failed to see the difference. The resolution was carried
