asked the Vice President of the Council, If it be true that the Grammar School at Tideswell has been closed for three or four years past; and, if so, to state to the House why it has been closed, and whether any steps are being taken to have it re-opened?

I have referred the hon. Gentleman's Question to the Charity Commissioners, and I am informed that it is true the Grammar School at Tideswell has been practically closed for three years and some months. I am also informed that it is understood it has been closed principally on account of dissensions between the master and other members of the Governing Body. A scheme for the future administration of the school has been framed by the Charity Commissioners and has recently been passed by the Lords of the Committee of Council on Education, so that I trust after a short time the school will be re-opened.
