§ SIR EDWARD SASSOON (Hythe)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education, what was the average sum per scholar in non-provided schools paid out of the Exchequer in the past year.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Mr. MCKENNA,) Monmouthshire, N.
Exchequer grants are paid in aid of the general expenses of local education authorities under Part III. of the Education Act, and are not allocated to individual schools and indeed in some cases, are not paid on the basis of attendance. It is impossible, therefore, to separate the grants paid in respect of council and voluntary schools respectively.
§ SIR EDWARD SASSOON
asked whether the allocation of money for educational purposes to non-provided schools was not made in a lump.
§ MR. MCKENNA
Yes, Sir, in the case of the non-provided schools. Does the hon. Gentleman mean in the Bill?
