HC Deb 11 March 1908 vol 185 cc1502-3
MR. DICKINSON (St. Pancras, N.)

To ask the President of the Board of Education whether he can give the total sum of money expended by the managers of non-provided schools in London in complying with the requirements for structural alterations issued by the London County Council, and will also state what proportion of this money has been raised by voluntary subscriptions, by the use of endowment funds, and by the mortgage of the school premises, respectively.

(Answered by Mr. McKenna.) I have no information as to the cost of the alterations referred to or as to the amounts contributed by voluntary subscriptions. If it would be of any service to my hon. friend I could give him the amount of the capital funds of endowments, and the sums raised by way of mortgage of the school premises, which the Board have sanctioned by schemes and orders under the Charitable Trusts Act to be expended on repairs or alterations to voluntary schools in London since the Education (London) Act came into operation. But I am not in a position to say whether these sums have in all cases actually been expended or not.
