HC Deb 15 March 1904 vol 131 cc1140-1
MR. CLANCY (Dublin County, N.)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer from what dates, respectively, did the additional grant for education in England and Wales, consequent on the Education Act of 1902, and the Irish †See page 855. Development Fund Grant, begin to accrue, and what was the amount paid on account of each grant in the financial year 1903–4.


The Aid Grant under the Education Act, 1902, begins to accrue from different dates in different localities. The amount that will be paid in respect of the grant in the present financial year cannot yet be stated. The Ireland Development Grant Act provided that two-thirds of a full year's grant should be paid in the current year.
