HC Deb 05 March 1903 vol 118 c1561
*MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General, as representing the Secretary of State for the Colonies, seeing that the last Report on Basutoland shows a sum of £75,380 to the credit of the Administration, will he state when the proposed increase in the Education Grants will be made.

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN,, for Mr. J. Chamberlain) Worcestershire, E.

The question of the best means of applying the surplus for the benefit of the Basutos and the development of the country is engaging the earnest attention of Lord Milner. In the meantime, increased provision for educational expenditure has been made in the Estimates for the current financial year.
