Order in Council.

At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 3rd of June, 1839.

Present,
The Queen's Most ExcELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

WHEREAS there was this day read at the Board a Report from the Committee of Council appointed to superintend the application of any sums voted by Parliament for the purpose of promoting Public Education ; which Report, dated the 1st of June, was in the words following, viz. :

“ Your Majesty having been pleased, by your Order in Council of the 10th April, 1839, to appoint us a Committee of Council to Superintend the application of any Sums voted by Parliament for the purpose of promoting Public Education; We, the Lords of the said Committee, have this day met, and agreed humbly to present to your Majesty the following Report:

“ The Lords of the Committee recommend that the sum of Ten Thousand Pounds, granted by Parliament in 1835 towards the erection of Normal or Model Schools, be given in equal proportions to the National Society and the British and Foreign School Society. That the remainder of the subsequent Grants of the years 1837 and 1838, yet unappropriated, and any grant that may be voted in the present year, be chiefly applied in aid of Subscriptions for building, and, in particular cases, for the support of Schools connected with those Societies; but that the rule hitherto adopted of making a Grant to those places where the largest proportion is subscribed be not invariably adhered to, should application be made from very poor and populous districts, where Sub. scriptions to a sufficient amount cannot be obtained.

“ 'The Committee do not feel themselves precluded from making Grants in particular cases which shall appear to them to call for

the aid of Government, although the applications may not come from either of the two mentioned Societies.

“The Committee are of opinion that the most useful application of any sums voted by Parliament would consist in the employment of those moneys in the establishment of a Normal School, under the direction of the State, and not placed under the management of a voluntary Society. The Committee, however, experience so much difficulty in reconciling conflicting views respecting the provisions which they are desirous to make in furtherance of your Majesty's wish that the children and teachers instructed in this School should be duly trained in the principles of the Christian religion, while the rights of conscience should be respected, that it is not in the power of the Committee to mature a plan for the accomplishment of this design without further consideration; and they therefore postpone taking any steps for this purpose until greater concurrence of opinion is found to prevail.

The Committee recommend that no further Grant be made, now or hereafter, for the establishment or support of Normal Schools, or of any other Schools, unless the right of inspection be retained, in order to secure a conformity to the regulations and discipline established in the several Schools, with such improvements as may from time to time be suggested by the Committee. “A part of any Grant voted in the present year may

be usefully applied to the purposes of inspection, and to the means of acquiring a complete knowledge of the present state of Education in England and Wales."

Her Majesty, having taken the said Report into consideration, was pleased, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, to

approve thereof.

Order in Council.

At the Court at Buckingham Palace, 10th of August, 1840.

Present THE QUEEN's Most ExceLLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL. WHEREAS there was this day read at the Board a Report from the Lords of the Committee of Council on Education dated the 15th July ultimo, in the words following, viz. :

We, the Lords of the Committee of Council on Education, beg leave humbly to recommend to your Majesty that the following arrangements be made for the inspection of such Schools as are in connexion with the National School Society, or with the Church of England

“1.-That before we recommend to your Majesty any person to be appointed to inspect Schools receiving aid from the public, the promoters of which state themselves to be in connexion with the National Society or the Church of England, we should be authorized to consult the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, each with regard to his own province, and that the Archbishops should be at liberty to suggest to us any person or persons for the office of Inspector, and that without their concurrence we should recomiend no person to your Majesty for such appointment.

“ We further beg leave to recommend to your Majesty that if either of the Archbishops should at any time, with regard to his own province, withdraw his concurrence in our recommendation of such appointment, your Majesty would be graciously pleased to permit us to advise your Majesty to issue your Order in Council, revoking the appointment of the said Inspector, and making an appointment in lieu thereof.

“We further beg leave humbly to recommend to your Majesty to direct that such portions of the Instructions to these Inspectors as relate to religious teaching shall be framed by the Archbishops, and form part of the general instructions issued by us to the In

spectors of such Schools, and that the general instructions shall be communicated to the Archbishops before they are finally sanctioned by us.

“ We are further of opinion that each of the said Inspectors, at the same time that he presents any Report relating to such Schools to the Committee of the Privy Council, should be directed to transmit a duplicate thereof to the Archbishop of the Province, and should also send a copy to the Bishop of the Diocese in which the school is situate, for his information.

“We are further of opinion that the grants of money which we may recommend to your Majesty should be in proportion to the number of children educated and the amount of money raised by private contribution, with the power of making exceptions in certain cases, the grounds of which will be stated in the annual Returns to Parliament."

Her Majesty, having taken the said Report into consideration, was pleased, by and with the advice of her Privy Council, 10 approve thereof; and the Lord President of the Council is to take the necessary steps herein accordingly.

(Signed) C. C. GREVILLE.
