HC Deb 24 April 1903 vol 121 c357
Mr. HENRY HOBHOUSE (Somersetshire, E.)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board if he can state to what extent the County Councils will have, under the provisions of Schedule 2 (22) of the Education Act, 1892, to credit school board parishes with part of the first Parliamentary grants paid to the councils in respect of the former board schools.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) I am advised that a County Council should credit the parishes in the district of a school board with that proportion of the grants referred to which accrues in respect of any period before the date when the school boards are abolished.
