HC Deb 16 June 1913 vol 54 c37
61. Mr. NEWMAN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is yet able to state the extra sum that the Treasury is prepared to grant in respect of the current financial year to the relief of the educational rate in necessitous school areas?


I can add nothing to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave on the 8th May last to my hon. Friend the Member for Merthyr Tydvil. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a letter which my right hon. Friend addressed on the 11th instant to the hon. Member for the Romford Division.


Will there be any relief given this year?


I am not quite sure what are the terms of the letter, but I am sending a copy.
