HC Deb 01 April 1912 vol 36 c874

asked the Secretary for Scotland if his attention had been directed to the needs of the Glasgow School Board for the medical treatment of school children as provided for by the Education (Scotland) Act of 1908; had an adequate sum been granted for the purpose; and would the Department surcharge the members if the expenditure had been excessive?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. With regard to the amount of the Grant for purposes of medical treatment, the Scotch Education Department are in communication with the school boards and have invited suggestions as to the allocation of the sum of £7,500 granted by the Treasury. I am not aware that any question of surcharge has arisen.
