§ MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education, having regard to the fact that grants of public money are now made to secondary schools where the pupils pay high fees, and which schools are carried on for profit in the shape of a dividend on the capital whether these grants are made to all other private schools on similar terms
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. GRANT LAWSON, Yorkshire, N.R., Thirsk, for Sir J. GORST)
Grants of public money are not made to schools conducted for private profit. But schools carried on by public companies in which the dividend is limited to 5 per cent. or less by Articles of Association, are not regarded as carried on for private profit.
§ MR. BARTLEY
So, if a private school is made into a limited company, it would then receive a public grant?
