HC Deb 06 March 1911 vol 22 c818

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that there are several schools and institutions whose grants for their technological instruction for the year ending 31st July, 1910, have not been paid; and, if so, what is the reason?


I am aware that there are some Grants yet to be paid for work done under the Regulations for Technical Schools, etc., in the year in question. I hope that practically all outstanding claims may be settled before the close of the current financial year. A great number of forms of claim for grants are received by the Board of Education at one time. Each form has to be carefully scrutinised by the Board's officers. It is, therefore, impossible to pay out all grants immediately.
