HC Deb 05 March 1912 vol 35 cc201-2

asked the President of the Board of Education whether the whole of the £100,000 voted in the Appropriation Act of 1907 for the provision of new schools in single-school areas has been spent; if not, what part of it; and whether he will state the places in which the schools have been built?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. J. A. Pease)

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. With reference to the second part of the question, payments amounting to £58,482 16s. 6d. have been made in respect of special Grants for the building of new public elementary schools. With reference to the last part of the question, there is nothing to add to a statement published by the Board of Education in 1910 (Cd. 5, 155), and to an answer given to the hon. Member for the Wilton Division on the 17th August last, copies of which I am sending the hon. Member.
