§ DR. MACNAMARA (Camberwell,. N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education whether he will grant a Return, showing for each county and county borough in England and Wales the amount raised by rates in each complete year since the appointed day under the Education Acts, 1902 and 1903, and the rate in the £ which that represents, under Part II. and Part III., respectively; showing also the same in respect of each borough and urban district council which is a local education authority for Part III. of the Act in each such area.
§ MR. BIRRELL
I understand that the Departmental Committee appointed by the late Prime Minister are collecting statistics which will include the information desired by the hon. Member; and further that it is the intention of the Committee to submit Returns received by them for the information of the Government in an interim Report which they hope to present before Easter, There will, therefore, I think, be no reason to move for the Return proposed.
