§ Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why no payment has been made to local education authorities out of the Local Taxation (Customs and Excise Residue) Grant for the purposes of higher education in respect of the financial year 1909–10; when the next instalment of the above grant will be received by such authorities; and what diminution, if any, is expected in the total amount of the above grant available for such purposes as compared with previous years?
§ Mr. BURNS
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. As regards the former part of it, I may refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave today to the hon. Member for the Bridgwater Division. No definite information can be given at present in reply to the last part of the question.
