§ MR. LAIDLAW (Renfrewshire, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he is now in a position to give any information regarding special grants to St. Paul's School at Darjeeling, about which he sent inquiries to India in December last.
§ MR. MORLEY
Special financial aid has for the last five years been given to St. Paul's School, as it is considered essential that a school of a good standard should be maintained in the hills for European boys in Bengal. The rules for European schools provide for such grants being given, and also that no grants shall be given for instruction in religious subjects. Such aid is available to other denominational schools if they apply for it and are willing to submit to the conditions.
