§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON (Tower Hamlets, Poplar)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, in reference to the Return he has issued giving the estimate of the probable additional expenditure caused by the changes in the New Code, 1890, how he arrives at the estimate of £30,000 73 only as the additional expenditure likely to be incurred under Articles 101 (a) and (b); and whether the total estimated additional expenditure of £95,000 is for a whole year, or for that portion of the existing financial year only during which the New Code will be in force?
§ *THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE (Sir W. HART DYKE,) Kent, Dartford
£95,000 is the total estimated expenditure for a whole year. With regard to tins item of £30,000, I can only say that it is an estimate framed upon what is, undoubtedly, a somewhat conjectural basis, by the best expert assistance at the disposal of the Department.
