HC Deb 19 November 1908 vol 196 c1376
MR. MENZIES (Lanarkshire, S.)

To ask the Secretary for Scotland what will be the average increase in the amount of Government grants to elementary schools in Scotland after the second scheme of allocation is effected; and what will be the increase in particular to Lanarkshire.

(Answered by Mr. Sinclair.) While it is confidently anticipated that there will be a substantial increase in the amount of grant to elementary schools generally under the provisions of the Bill, it is not possible at present to estimate the amount of increase with any exactness, and it is inexpedient to give figures which might possibly be misleading.
