§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON (Tower Hamlets, Poplar)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether the amount of £11,971, stated in the Return [C. 8422] as the sum to which West Ham (Borough) will be entitled under the Poor School Boards Bill is approximately correct; and if not, could he state what is the approximate amount which West Ham will receive under the Bill?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir JOHN GORST, Cambridge University)
The amount payable to West Ham is correctly stated for the period and on the assumptions mentioned 1237 in the Return. The Education Department have at present no later or more accurate information.
