HC Deb 06 March 1885 vol 295 c288

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council, If he will state the number, if any, of voluntary schools which have no income from private subscriptions but which are supported by school fees and Government grants; and if he will state the scale of fees usually adopted in those schools?


I cannot at once supply the information asked, as the Return will require the examination of the balance-sheets of 19,000 schools; but I shall be very happy to settle with the hon. Member the form of a Return which will give such information at the expiration of a year. I think it should refer to all sohools—Board and Voluntary.
