asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, when the control of the Endowed Schools was transferred in 1875 to the Charity Commissioners, they found that it "did not answer" to give the power of appeal against dismissal to assistant masters, and that they had therefore taken it away, excepting in the case of masters who had laid out large sums in boarding houses with consent of the authorities; and, whether it is true, as reported in the public journals, that the Charity Commissioners have recently approved a new scheme for the government of Felstead Grammar School, by which assistant masters dismissed by the head master are given an appeal to the governing body?
