§ MR. JOICEY (Durham, Chester-le. Street)
I had intended to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education if his attention has been called to the following figures, as given in the Return of "Schools Examined," No. 403, 1890, namely, Trimdon Colliery, Durham, Average Attendance of Boys, 158; Income from Fees, £85 9s. 4d.: Average Attendance of Girls and Infants, 260; Income from Fees, £107 15s. 5d.: makinga total of averageattendance,418; Income from Fees, £193 4s. 9d.; and whether, in this and similar cases, where two or more schools are under the same management, and where a grant of 10s. per head, after allowance is made for children under five and over 14, equals or exceeds the present total for income of the schools, it is proposed under the Elementary Education Bull to allow the higher feed school to charge to the scholars the excess fee over the amount of the fee grant to that school? In the absence of the right hon. Gentleman I will postpone the question until Thursday.
§ MR. JOICEY
also postponed a question to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether it is proposed under the Elementary Education Bill to pay the fee grant of 10s. to a school such as the Crooks' Charity school, Hartlepool, which in 1889 received no income from fees?
