HC Deb 14 April 1910 vol 16 c1569W

asked the Secretary to the Board of Education whether the failure to pay the accustomed grants to the local education authorities for secondary schools is due solely to the diminution in the consumption of whisky, or to what other cause?


I am afraid I do not quite understand the question. There has been no failure on the part of the Board of Education to pay Grants due in respect of secondary schools. If the question refers only to the residue under Section 1 of the Local Taxation (Customs and Excise) Act, 1890, commonly known as the Whisky Money, it should be addressed to my right hon. Friend the President of the Local Government Board.
