which your Lordships were pleased to grant £
are completed in a satisfactory and workmanlike manner,
being built of the proper dimensions, with the fences, out-
buildings, and school furniture, described in the plan and spe-

cification proposed to, and approved by, your Lordships. 2nd. That all private subscriptions and donatio:is have been re

ceived, expended, and accounted for, as set forth in the annexed balance sheet of receipts and expenditure, and that there does not remain any debt, charge, or claim of any kind, on account of the buildings, school furniture and appurtenances, except what will be liquidated by your Lordships'

grant, the payment of which is now prayed for. 3rd. That the site of the schoolhouse and master's house has been

obtained with a good legal tenure, and has been duly con

veyed to Trustees, so as to secure the buildings for the purpose

of educating the children of the poor. 4th. That we are ready to submit to any audit of our accounts for

building which your Lordships may direct, to make such periodical reports respecting the state of our schools as your Lordships may call for, and to admit your Lordships' In

spectors according to the annexed regulation marked A. 51h. That the deed of trust has been examined, and approved by

your Lordships' counsel, and has been duly enrolled in Chancery, according to law; that a copy thereof, together with the signatures, attestations, and receipts, has been made on plain unstamped parchment, and transmitted to the Council

REGULATION A. The right of inspection will be required by the Committee in all cases. Inspectors authorized by Her Majesty in Council will be appointed from time to time to visit schools to be henceforth aided by public money.

The Inspectors will not interfere with the religious instruction, or discipline, or management of the school ; it being their object to collect facts and information, and to report the results of their inspection to the Committee of Council.

[School-Building Form No. 4.] INSTRUCTIONS respecting the statement of the Tenure of the Site.

Privy Council Ofice, Downing-street. The attention of the solicitor is directed to the Acts for facilitating the Conveyances

of School Sites (4 and 5 Vict. c. 38, and 7 and 8 Vict., c. 37), published in the Ist volume of Minutes for 1844 (sent herewith).

A BRIEF but precise statement of the title of the present owner of the site is to be furnished.

A. If the site be glebe, it wil be sufficient to state that fact, and whether the glebe is inortgaged or not.

B. If the site be not glebe, it must be stated whether it is of freehold, copyhold, or leasehold tenure.

C. If the owner possess only a life interest in the property of which the site forms a part, their Lordships' counsel will require to be informed whether there is any person next entitled to an estate of inheritance in remainder, who is competent and willing to join in the grant (see 4 & 5 Vict., c. 38, s. 2); and if the owner be seized in fee, whether the property is in any way settled or charged.

D. If the site be of copy hold tenure, their Lordships will require that it be enfranchised. The title of the lord and the

copyholder must be stated. The interest of the lord and of the copyholder may generally be conveyed under one deed.

E. Leasehold sites are very objectionable, and are not accepted by the Committee of Council excepting when a freehold site cannot be obtained, and when a long term of lease—as for example of 99 years-can be procured with a small ground rent.

When such a lease can be procured their Lordships require that the clause for re-entry on breach of any of the covenants of the lease shall be so qualified as to be inoperative until the grant of money made towards the erection of the school has been repaid to the Lords of the Treasury.

But if a leasehold site has been purchased, and the lease had been executed previously to such purchase, or previously to the application to their Lordships, without any such clause, their Lordships require that some responsible persons shall execute a bond, rendering them and their heirs and personal representatives liable to the repayment of any grant which may be made under the recommendation of their Lordships, if the power of re-entry be exercised by the lessor in consequence of a breach of the co

venants of the lease. The following questions relating to the tenure of the site must be answered by the solicitor employed by the promoters of the school, and signed by him and by the correspondent appointed on their behalf.

State whether the site is glebe or of freehold, copyhold, or leasehold tenure.

State the name of the person who is to give or sell the site.

What is the owner's title to the property of which the site forms a part ?

State whether the estate is in any manner settled or charged.
If so, state how, and whether the mortagee will join in the grant.

If the owner possess only a life interest in the property, state if there be any person next entitled to an estate of inheritance in remainder who is competent and willing to join in the grant.

If the site be leasehold, state what term of lease can be obtained, who is to grant it, and furnish a statement of the title of the granter.

State also whether the owner is willing that the operation of the clause of re-entry upon breach of covenant, usually inserted in leases, shall be qualified so as to become inoperative until any grant made by the recommendation of their Lordships shall be repaid. Signed this day of

184. (Solicitor, on behalf of the Promoters of

the School.) (Correspondent, on behalf of the Pro

moters of the School.)
