HC Deb 05 March 1912 vol 35 c334W

asked the President of the Board of Education if he will say what was the total expenditure, otherwise than out of loans, m England and Wales, in the last financial year for which figures are available, for educational purposes of all kinds, distinguishing the total amount paid out of national funds and the amount defrayed out of rates?


I can only give my hon. Friend the figures relating to the expenditure by the Board out of moneys voted by Parliament and by local authorities out of rates. For the financial year, 1909–10, the expenditure

of the Board was £13,640,789
of the local authorities was £13,493,679
Total £27,134,468
The expenditure by the Board for the financial year 1910–11, was £14,146,709, but the figures showing the local authorities' expenditure in that year are not yet available. Further particulars of this expenditure will be found in the Financial Statistics, published by the Board [Cd. 6018], pages 3, 34, and 218.
