HC Deb 04 December 1930 vol 245 c2377
51. Mr. RAMSAY

asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware that a large number of children are boarded out into private families in certain areas by corporations who pay for the ordinary maintenance of such children; and whether the educational authorities in the areas in which these corporations are situated or the educational authorities of the areas to which these children have been sent will be responsible for the payment of the maintenance grants in the event of the Education (School Attendance) Bill as drafted becoming an Act 0: Parliament?


If I rightly understand the cases to which the hon. Member refers, no maintenance allowances would be payable. The body which pays for the maintenance of the child would be excluded from receiving the allowance by the prescribed income limits, and the person who receives the child would be excluded because he or she would not be maintaining the child.
