42. Major HOPE
asked the Secretary for Scotland if he can state approximately what sum will be available in aid of education in Scotland during the current financial year from the proposed Budget Grant in aid of local taxation?
The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer which I gave yesterday to my hon. Friend the Member for Stirlingshire.
Can the right hon. Gentleman give us any estimate of what amount 1756 will be available this year—is it £130,000 or more? I want to know the amount available for education in Scotland for the current year?
