THE SCHOOL BOARD QUESTION AT HAWARDEN. 0 At the monthly meeting of the Mold School Board, held on Wednesday evening, under the chairmanship of the Rev. E. Bithel. of Lees- wood, the Clerk (Mr. H. G. Roberts) read a communication from the Education Department affecting the education question recently raised in the Hawarden and Buckley districts. At the previous meeting of the Board the Education Department wrote saying they proposed to recommend the Local Government Board to include in the Mold School Board district that portion of the parish of Hawarden which would come within the area of the proposed Buckley Urban Council. This pro- posal was not well received among certain residents of Hawarden, and some little outcry was raised against part of Hawarden being in- cluded in a School Board district.—The Clerk read a letter, dated 11th inst., which stated that the previous letter was written under a misunder- standing with regard to the intention of the order of the County Council, and the modifica- tions proposed by the Local Government Board as to the formation of new parishes. As it was now proposed that the portion of Mold (rural) to be included in the new urban district of Buckley should be a separate civil parish, there would be no necessity for any alteration in the present school district of Mold.—Mr. J. Lamb (Buckley) said that the people of Buckley had no voice in the matter officially, except at the meetings of that Board, and he thought they ought to take the question up.—The Clerk ex- plained that the letter meant that the area of the School Board district would not be altered, and that part of Hawarden was not to be included in the district, as at first proposed.—Mr. Lamb said the Education Department were practically not falling in with the requisition of the County Council, but with the requisition of the Local Government Board. He could not see why there should be a misunderstanding of that kind. He wanted to know where the mis- understanding had arisen.—The Clerk Do you wish me to write to the Education Department, asking the nature of the misunderstanding ?— Mr. Lamb: Yes, if possible.—Mr. Prince thought the misunderstanding might have arisen from the interpretation of the in- structions of the County Council.—Mr. Lamb complained that the authorities had practically closed the matter without consulting the School Board.—The Rev. E. M. Roderick (the newly-appointed vicar of Ruabon) urged that the question did not affect that Board as it stood, being outside their district.—Mr. Lamb The matter won't rest there.—Mr. Prince: J think it is a matter for the Bucklev people t( take up themselves.—The chairman thought j there would be no harm in addressing an inquiry to the Education Department, and ultimately it was decided, on the proposition of Mr. Lamb, seconded by Mr. J. E. Davies (Cefn- y-Gader), to write to their Lordships, asking why there had been a misunderstanding, and why it was not now proposed to include part of Hawarden in the district.
