HC Deb 13 March 1912 vol 35 c1240W

asked the Secretary for Scotland what steps he proposes to take in view of the shortage in the amount available for the additional fee Grant under Section 17 (11) of the Education (Scotland) Act of 1908, which took the place of the additional Aid Grant; and if he can hold out any prospect of an early remedy, seeing that at a time when school boards are being pressed to meet the new requirements of the Act this shortage means a serious addition to their local rates?


The representations of the Department in favour of a further addition to the General Aid Grant have not been acceded to by the Treasury, and I am not able to hold out any prospect of a further Grant.
