§ *SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether he sees his way to a modification of the 4s. special grant proposal so far as it concerns poor School Board districts, inasmuch as the special grant proposed by him will in some cases produce less than the existing poor districts section of the Act of 1870, upon which he desires to improve?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
The Committee of Council will consider any proposed modification of the special aid grant, but they are unaware of any case in which the grant to School Boards will be less than that under Section 97 of the Act of 1870.
§ *SIR C. DILKE
There is a case in Dean Forest. I will send the figures to the right hon. Gentleman.
