§ LORD BALCARRES (Lancashire, Chorley)
To ask the President of the Board of Education if the State aided schools founded by Clause 4 of the Education Bill are public elementary schoo's.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) As I stated yesterday, the point referred to in the Question is under consideration and I am not yet prepared to give an answer. The main general conditions of Parliamentary grants will certainly be applied to them, and the point is, therefore, not much more than one of terminology.
