§ MR. BRIDGEMAN (Shropshire, Owestry)
To ask the President of the Board of Education how many secondary schools in Wales and Monmouth are receiving giants under Section 9 of the Welsh Intermediate Education Act as well as the ordinary secondary school grants; and what is the total amount of the two grants, respectively.
(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) It is anticipated that, of the ninety-four intermediate schools in aid of which the Treasury grant under Section 9 of the Welsh Intermediate Education Act, 1889, is payable, ninety-one schools will claim the grant for the school year 1907–8, and will also be entitled to grant under the regulations for secondary schools (Wales) for that year. The total Treasury grant for all intermediate schools for that year was estimated at £24,115 4s., and the aggregate grants under the regulations for secondary schools (Wales) for secondary schools, whether intermediate or not, for the same year was estimated at £53,831.
