§ 33. Sir CHARLES CAYZER
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education if he can state the present financial position of the different church training colleges; and whether they have readjusted their activities to the reduced grants?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
An estimate of the financial position of the Church of England Training Colleges is contained in the report of the Board of Supervision, which was adopted by the Church Assembly on 8th February, and my Noble Friend understands that their proposals for an increase in fees and the formation of a common fund to assist in maintaining all the colleges in being, are being proceeded with.
§ Sir C. CAYZER
In view of the much more favourable financial situation of the country, will my hon. Friend urge upon the Chancellor of the Exchequer the desirability of restoring the original grants to training colleges at the earliest possible opportunity?
