§ Mr. TREVELYAN
The hon. Member will find information for the year 1907–8 in White Paper, Cd. 4569, of 1909. Some of the institutions providing agricultural instruction which were aided by the Board of Education in 1907–8 were not aided by them for 1910–11 or 1911–12. The total amounts of the Board of Education Grants for the years 1910–11 and 1911–12 are estimated to be:—
The important remarks and explanations given in the White Paper remain generally applicable. There are no available figures of the total amount of Grant paid for agricultural education in 1908–9 and 1909–10, and in view of the labour which would be involved in obtaining this information I hope that the figures given will be sufficient for the purpose of the hon. Member.
