HC Deb 23 April 1896 vol 39 c1521

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Buckfastleigh Roman Catholic School, built and opened in 1893, and certified by the Education Department as a public elementary school satisfying all the requirements of the, Code, and since examined by Her Majesty's Inspectors, and reported of very highly, receives no grant; whether he can say why this school has been so treated; whether this school will be entitled to a grant under the Education Bill now before the House; and whether, in the time between now and the passing of the Education Bill, this school will be allowed a grant under the existing law?


The school, as I stated in answer to a Question on the 29th of August last, is refused the grant on the ground that it is unnecessary, within the meaning of Article 80 of the Code, The position of the school will not be affected in this respect by the Bill now before the House?
