A meeting of the School Board was held on Friday night, the Chairman (Mr. J.W. Lumley) presiding. Speaking on the Education Bill, the Chairman said it was very necessary for the public to watch the effect of the proposals of the Government with regard to the increased grant to Voluntary Schools. It was necessary for the School Board to endyeavour to influence the ratepayers to support the Board Schools by gending t,heir children there. It would very likely happen that when the grant was passed, the friends of the Voluntary Schools would make an effort, for which he did not blame them, to get as many children to go to the Voluntary Schools as they could, for the pur- pose of earning the larger grants and if the ,addition of the attendance at the other school was obtained by reducing the attendance at the Board School, the consequent reduction in the grant would fall on the ratepayers of the dis- trict, the reduction in the grant having to be met by higher rates. He spoke simply on financial grounds and parents who had a con- scientious belief that they ought to send their children to a particular school to obtain for them a particular education had a perfect right to do so. Subsequently, a resolution was passed strong- ly disapproving of the extra State-aid to Vo- luntary Schools unless similar aid were given to necessitous Board Schools. The Clerk (Mr. Ezra Robes is), made the sug- gestion that the test of necessity in Board Schools should be that the rates in their dis- trict did not exceed C20 for each penny in the pound levied, such schools being for country districts only. The Board also disapproved of the appoint- ment of Mr. Legard as the Chief Inspector of Schools for Wales, the mover of the motion- Mr. Francis Dowell-saying he did not do so on national grounds, but simply because Mr. Legard did not understand the Welsh language.
