HC Deb 07 April 1892 vol 3 c846
MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether Her Majesty's Government propose to require all schools receiving grants for secondary education under Sub-section (1) (b) of Section 2 of the Education and Local Taxation Relief (Scotland) Bill, to submit to inspection under Subsection (1) (a); what classes of schools, besides schools under the management of School Boards, are to be admitted to participate in the grants under Subsection (1) (b); and whether it is intended to extend the proposed grants to schools under the control of, or in connection with, any particular religious denomination?


The hon. Member will no doubt feel that there is considerable inconvenience in making piecemeal statements on a somewhat complicated question of policy in answer to interrogations across the floor of the House. I will take care that full information shall be in the hands of hon. Gentlemen in time for the discussion which may be raised on the Committee stage.


What form will the information take, and when may we hope to get it?


The statement will, I anticipate, be in printed form, and be laid on the Table in ample time.
