§ MR. MEYSEY-THOMPSON
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education if he will give the items and particulars forming the sum of £200,000 to be allotted to certain local education.authorities; and when these grants will be paid.
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Mr. BIRRELL,) Bristol, N.
The sum named is an estimate of the maximum sum likely to be needed to carry out the Regulations recently issued for the Special Grant which is payable this year, and this year only. I can give no accurate list of individual authorities or amounts until the audited Financial Statements of the Local Education Authority† See Col. 433.1050 concerned have reached the Board of Education and been investigated there. The grants will, as a rule, be paid before the close of this year.
