HC Deb 05 March 1936 vol 309 cc1549-50
41. Mr. SHORT

asked the President of the Board of Education the total financial grants made to Catholic schools during the last financial year?


The Board do not make grants direct to Catholic or other elementary voluntary schools. Such schools are maintained by the local education authorities and the expenditure incurred thereon forms part of the total expenditure of the authorities on which a bulk assessment is made for the purpose of the Board's grants.
