§ MR. C. HARRISON (Plymouth)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, with regard to the fact that local rates levied upon Board Schools are paid out of funds made up of Imperial grant and Board School rates, and levied over the whole of the School Board area, and that by exempting Voluntary Schools in boroughs and counties respectively from local rates the burden of making up the deficiency will be thrown, not on the borough or county generally, but upon the particular parish in a borough or county in which the school may be situate, whether the Government will adjust the burden so that the same shall be borne by the whole of the borough or county in which the schools so excepted may be situate?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY
I hope the hon. Gentleman will defer any discussion of an argumentative character on the details of the Education Bill until we get to the Committee stage.
