HC Deb 02 February 1897 vol 45 c1063
MR. F. A. CHANNING (Northampton, E.)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education when a Supplementary Estimate will be presented to provide, during the current financial year, for the hitherto unclaimed or unpaid grants to necessitous School Boards, under Section 97 of The Elementary Education Act 1870, for which provision was not made in the Education Votes passed last Session; and what the amount so pro-provided in the Supplementary Estimate for this purpose will be?


The Supplementary Estimate which the Committee of Council will shortly submit to the Treasury for presentation to this House will include a sum of nearly £20,000 for paying such claims referred to as are admissible.
