EDUCATION CAMPAIGN: NEW MOVE

Bishop and M.Pes to discuss schools

ARRANGEMENTS are being made for Bishop Beck. chairman of the Catholic Education Council, to meet Catholic Members of Parliament soon to discuss the possibilities of new legislation to ensure the safety of the voluntary schools.

The negotiations between representatives of the Hierarchy and the Ministry of Education earlier this year were discussed at a meeting of the Hierarchy's Action Committee last Saturday.

Mr. R. A. G. O'Brien, secretary of the Catholic Education Council, informs THE CATHOLIC HERALD that the committee were of the opinion that no real relief could be afforded in the present financial crisis of the voluntary schools merely by administrative action.

Hindrance

" The hindrance lies in the financial provisions of the Education Act 1944 itself, to which provisions the Catholic body has never given its agreement. .'And therefore, while it was decided that the efforts to secure such administrative easement as is feasible should be pursued the committee considered that it was necessary to examine the possibilities of amending legislation to ensure that the voluntary schools will be able to continue in existence until such time as a just and final solution is obtained," The meeting of Bishop Beck and the Catholic M.P.s has been arranged for this purpose
