INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION IN DENBIGHSHIRE. 4 At a meeting of the St. Asaph Board of Guardians on Saturday, under the presidency of Mr. Edwin Morgan, a letter was read from Mr. Adams, Clerk of the Peace for Denbighshire, asking for a cheque for the amount due from the Union in respect of intermediate education for the year 1894-5, and enclosing a resolution passed at a special meeting of the County Council held on the 5th inat., stating that pro- cedure would be adopted to enforce payment of the amount due after an appeal had been made. -The Clerk explained that the correspondence referred to a claim made by the County Council for an additional halfpenny rate in respect of expenses incurred two years ago in connection with intermediate education. The precept for the county rate jor the half-year ending March included a halfpenny rate for inter- mediate education expenses amounting to E191, which amount had already been paid. The section covering the contentious point in the Welsh Intermediate Education Act laid down very clearly that not more than a halfpenny rate should be levied in any one year for such a purpose.—The Chairman: What is our posi- tion ?-The Clerk We have already paid one rate this year, and the County Council now demand another one, which has reference to the years 1894-5. How it is that they did not levy the rate at the proper time I cannot under- stand. If we obey this precept we should be paying a penny in ,the pound, which the Act distinctly states we cannot do. The County Council now threaten proceedings if it is not paid.—In the course of further discussion, it was stated that some other unions had paid, and others had refused.—On the suggestion of the Clerk, it was resolved to write in replj stating that if it could be shewn that the Act of Parliament authorised such a payment, the Board would be prepared to meet it.
