HC Deb 23 April 1896 vol 39 c1529

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, with regard to Clause 13 of the Education Bill which prohibits any preference or advantage to any school on the ground that it is or is not provided by a School Board, whether the local authority would be justified in distributing the School Board surplus to schools not provided by a School Board?


An education authority would not be justified in distributing any of the School Board portion of the special aid grant to schools not provided by a School Board. It is expressly provided that Clause 13 (1) shall not apply to the special aid grant.
