§ Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked the President of the Board of Education if he can state how much public money is now expended in England and Wales upon elementary, secondary, and technical education, respectively, and how much upon continuation schools; and from what sources and to what extent, respectively, is such public money derived?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The question cannot be answered in the form in which it is put, nor does the subject lend itself, in any case, to discussion by question and answer. The hon. Member will find such information as is available on the subjects to which he refers in the Statistics of the Board of Education, published in 1911 [Cd. 5506]. Information with regard to the expenditure of Local Education Authorities will be found on pages 34 and 35 of that volume as regards England, and on pages 218 and 219 as regards Wales. The expenditure of the Board of Education in England and Wales is dealt with on pages 3 and 4 of the same volume.
