CHESHIRE AND THE VOLUNTARY SCHOOLS ACT. « FORMATION OF A DIOCESAN CHURCH SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION. The arrangements for putting into force, in Cheshire, the Voluntary Schools Act are rapidly nearing completion. An organisation has been formed under the title of the' Chester Diocesan Church Schools Association/ and has been approved by the Education Department. There are 57 elected members and one co-opted member, and power is given to co-opt nine other members, thus increasing the number to 67. The elected members are the managers of the schools, numbering about 340, in the county which have joined the association, and of these 28 are clergymen and 31 laymen. Two meet- ings of the Governing Body have been held, one at Chester and the other at Crewe, and the following officers have been appointed:— The Bishop of Chester, chairman; Messrs. G. B. Baker, Rode Hall, and J. M. Yates, Hartford, vice-chairmen Canon Wood, vicar of Runcorn, secretary; and Mr. J. R. Thomson, Chester, treasurer. An advisory committee has been appointed in each rural deanery, and these have already reported to the Governing Body, who have appointed a revising committee, consisting of the officers and a representative from each rural deanery, whose business it will be to present at the next meeting of the Governing Body a scheme for the distribution of the aid grant. The exact amount to be distributed by the Association is not at present known, nor is there any certainty as to when the amount will be handed over, the Educa- tion Department not yet having fixed any specified time. It is anticipated, however, that a scheme will be sent during the next month to the Education Department for their approval. The scheme to be laid before the Depart- ment is for one year only. The following are the gentlemen elected for the next three years as the Governing Body from the respective rural deaneries in the county :—Birkenhead: The Rev.
