HC Deb 16 August 1843 vol 71 cc867-8
Mr. Ewart

asked whether the Government meant to propose a supplementary vote for education, or what measures they intended to take on that subject.

Sir J. Graham

It is not the intention of Government to ask for an additional vote, as there is a sum of 40,000l. already placed at its disposal for securing the object alluded to by the hon. Gentleman. It is the intention of Government to direct attention to the subject of education, and to afford every assistance that can be given to the orders in council found in force when we succeeded to power. It is our intention to adhere to the principle of those orders in council.
