§ MR. BENN
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education if he will state the amount of the additional expense incurred to date in the administration of the London Education Act, 1903, both as regards total amount and cost per child; and whether he can at present give any estimate of the total additional cost which that measure involves to the Metropolis.
§ * SIR WILLIAM ANSON
The Board have at present no figures as to the expenditure of the London County Council under the London Education Act, 1903. Under the circumstances it is not possible for me to give any information on the subject.
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the replacement of the voluntary schools to be condemned will mean a 4d. rate on the London ratepayers?
