HC Deb 07 March 1862 vol 165 c1156

said, he wished to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council, Whether the Managers of Schools who do not, after the 31st day of March, 1862, undertake to provide and pay the full stipends and gratuities now severally payable on account of pupil-teachers during their current apprenticeships, will be entitled to claim any; and, if any, what portion of the Capitation Grant proposed to be paid under the regulations of the Revised Code?


The answer, Sir, to my right hon. Friend is this. During the year which will elapse from the 31st of March, 1862, to the 31st of March, 1863, all schools which are now aided by the Privy Council will be examined and paid on the principle of the old original Code; and therefore if, during that year, the managers do not make an arrangement for paying pupil-teachers, that will not prevent them from receiving the grant which they would be paid if there was no Revised Code. But after the 31st of March, 1863, managers can only receive one of two grants—either a grant for pupil-teachers only; or, in case they undertake to pay the pupil-teachers themselves, such capitation Grant as they will be entitled to under the New Code.
