§ *COLONEL SANDYS () Lancashire, Bootle
I wish to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can state the amount to be paid annually as an aid grant to Roman Catholic schools under the Education (England and Wales) Bill from from moneys provided by taxation.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
As my hon. friend is probably aware, the existing aid grant to Roman Catholic schools is abolished, and all the grants are now paid to the local authority. What proportion of these grants paid to the local authority will be used by the local authority in supporting Roman Catholic schools it is impossible for me to foresee.
