§ R. ERNEST GRAY (West Ham, N.)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education 6 whether the grants due to schools whose school year ended on or before the 31st March last, but not paid till after the passing of the Voluntary Schools Act, are liable to deduction under what is commonly known as the 17s. 6d. limit; and whether any deduction under that limit will be made in grants paid to schools on account of school years ending between 31st March 1897 and 31st March 1898?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
The 17s. 6d. limit will cease to affect the grants payable to schools whose school years end on or after March 31, 1897.
