§ MR. TALBOT (Oxford University)
To ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the rates now proposed to be made by the County Councils in respect of the Education Act of last year, and to the difficulty of obtaining the grants due to the schools until the close of the school year; and whether he will suggest means whereby the pressure upon the ratepayers which these arrangements involve can be relieved.
(Answered by Sir William Anson.) I can only refer the hon. Member to the replies to Questions on this point, which I gave to the hon. Member for North Camberwell on Monday,† and to the hon. Member for the Chelmsford Division of Essex yesterday.‡ I have nothing to add to those replies.
