§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)
To ask the Secretary to the Board of Education, Will the remainder of the school grants held by the managers of voluntary schools, have to be paid over to the local authority when the Education Bill comes into operation, or whether the annual grant has been forwarded to the managers as the result of past work.
(Answered by Sir William Anson.) No part of any Parliamentary grant held by the managers of a voluntary school will have to be paid over by them to the local education authority when the Bill comes into operation. Parliamentary grants payable in respect of a period before the appointed day will be paid, and must be applied, in accordance with Schedule 2 (12) of the Bill.
