§ Mr. ELLIS DAVIES
asked the President of the Board of Education whether the Board have had under consideration the application of the Carnarvonshire local education authority made in January last to the Treasury for a grant from the Development Fund in aid of the establishment of a farm institute at Madryn Castle; and when the local authority may have the Board's decision in the matter?
§ Mr. J. A. PEASE
The Board recently issued a circular which set out the general lines upon which grants would be made from the Development Fund in aid of the establishment of farm institutes. For reasons there given I cannot deal with applications from local education authorities until the regulations governing the payment of grants are published. These regulations are in an advanced state of preparation, and I shall publish them as soon as I can.
