HC Deb 24 February 1927 vol 202 c1905
42. Mr. COVE

asked the President of the Board of Education the average expenditure per pupil in elementary schools upon books, stationery, and apparatus, respectively, for the years 1920 to 1925, respectively?


The amounts do not show the net, but only the gross, expenditure on these items, and they group stationery with books, and apparatus with furniture and equipment. For details I would refer the hon. Member to pages 22 to 25 of the Memorandum on the Board of Education Estimates, 1926 [Cmd. 2688].
