§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Oliver Stanley)
I would remind the hon. Member that the Education Act, 1936, empowers local education authorities to make grants to voluntary bodies of 50 per cent. to 75 per cent. of the cost of improving existing provision for senior children and of building new schools for such children. The expenditure of local education authorities in making such grants will be eligible for recognition for grant from the board on the same terms as expenditure upon council school buildings.
