HC Deb 14 March 1922 vol 151 cc1979-80
110. Major KELLEY

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he proposes to continue the system of special grants to the education authorities in necessitous areas?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Herbert Fisher)

I do not propose to discontinue provision for additional grant in highly-rated areas, but it must not be assumed that the basis of the calculation of this grant will be the same for 1922–23 as for 1921–22, and I must ask the hon. and gallant Member to await the publication of the draft Regulations.
