HC Deb 14 April 1910 vol 16 cc1415-6

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will state how much (if any) of the amount available under the Local Taxation Act is given to Scottish education; and will he Bay what are the total sums spent respectively on Scotch and Irish education from rates, Parliamentary Grants, and all other sources for the last available financial year?


As this question relates to education in Scotland and Ireland, I must ask the hon. Member to address his inquiries to my right hon. Friends the Lord Advocate and the Chief Secretary respectively, who are responsible for education in the two countries.


Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that the Votes that I ask for information about are under his own hand in the Estimates? They are signed by himself.


Yes; the totals, but it is quite impossible, in order to obtain uniform statements in the House, for me to reply to these questions. He will get the information he seeks if he applies to the two Departments. He has only to put a question down to another Minister.
