HC Deb 23 July 1914 vol 65 c643

asked the President of the Board of Education whether it is proposed to submit, during the present Session, the necessary Supplementary Estimates in respect of the Grants for necessitous school areas and the feeding of school children; and, assuming that such Estimates are approved by the House, when it is proposed to pay these Grants to the local education authorities?

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

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. The Grant will be paid before the end of the financial year, but it is not possible to state the exact dates of payment as they depend largely on the dates on which the necessary particulars are received from the authorities.
