§ 58. Mr. HOGGE (in the absence of Mrs. Wintringham)
asked the President of the Board of Education what items are included in administrative and other expenditure forecasted for 1922–23 to amount in all to £14,844,000; and what is the amount expended in each item?
I presume the hon. Member refers to the figure in Section 6 on page 111 of the First Interim Report of the Committee on National Expenditure (Cmd. 1581). The figure of £14,844,000 for administration and other expenditure includes administration and expenditure in connection with elementary schools for rent, rates, taxes, insurance, fuel, light, cleaning, caretakers' wages, books, apparatus and stationery, repairs to buildings and furniture, and expenditure of a capital nature charged to revenue and miscellaneous charges. The amount of each item cannot be separately stated.
