§ MR. W. PEARCE (Tower Hamlets, Limehouse)
To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, as London receives from existing grants payable in respect of elementary education a lower grant than the rest of England and Wales, he will exempt London from the proposed limitation of 6s. per child under the new grants A, B, and C contained in the financial proposals in connection with the Education Bill.
(Answered by Mr. Hobhouse.) The question of these grants is being very carefully considered, but my right hon. friend is not in a position to make any announcement at present.
