Premier John Bracken set forth ttie government’s policy in re-apect of secondary education in suburban municipalities that arc* being administered by the Winnipeg suburban board in the legislature yesterday. It is one that evoked no ecstatic expressions of admiration from members of the opposition. For instance. Joseph Bernier, St. Boniface, described it as "patchy” and “piecemeal work.” C. A. Tanner, labor, said a retrograde step was being taken. Illegal interference was alleged by W. Sanford Evans, conservativ«*, and S. J. Farmer accused the government of having too tight a hold of the public purse strings, tin* principle adopt«»d f 'being undemocratic and unprogressive. Speaking on the motion for second reading of the bill to amend the Public Schools act. by authorizing tlio municipalities concerned to charge a fee from pupils for secondary education, Premier Bracken candidly stat-♦•<1 that the government had decided to stop guaranteeing the costs of secondary education in these municipalities. and intendi'd to adhere to that decision for the present at any rate.
