HC Deb 13 June 1910 vol 17 c1027

asked whether the Grant payable to the Victoria Council School, Wrexham, will be reduced owing to the closing of a portion of the infants' department of this school owing to infectious disease, although no reduction of Grant would be made if the whole school were closed; and whether the Board can see their way to amend Articles 43–45 of the Code of Regulations, 1909, with a view to making the same allowance to schools partially closed as is made to schools completely closed under recommendation of the local sanitary authority?


The facts are generally as stated in the first part of the question. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative; my right hon. Friend is not prepared to amend the Articles in question except in connection with a general revision of the system of Grants for public elementary schools.
