§ SIR WILLIAM WILLS (Bristol, E.)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education if he will explain why the Annual Grants to Art in the Estimates, Class 4, Sub-head E, are apparently £1,500 less than last year, while those to Science are increased by £26,000.
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir J. GORST,) Cambridge University
The diminution in the Art Grant is apparent only. Last year an extra three months attendance grant was paid to bring the school year up to the 413 end of July instead of to the end of May. The Art Grant is really increased by about £1,500. The actual increase of the Science Grant is about £20,000. £6,000 is to make up for an i under-estimate last year.
