HC Deb 31 March 1885 vol 296 c1096

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council, At what time Education Grants are due, and at what average time after inspection and report the Grants due ought actually to be paid?


The grant is conditionally due at the end of the school year. The grant ought to be paid within a month after the inspection of the school, provided that the returns and information furnished by the managers are complete. Any delay generally arises from the fact that the managers have omitted to supply some information which is required to satisfy the conditions of the Code. Special instructions have lately been issued to expedite the payments.
