HC Deb 12 November 1912 vol 43 c1834W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether there are any statutory enactments that prohibit the grant of moneys provided by Parliament towards the cost of building new public elementary schoolhouses erected by local education authorities; and, if so, whether he will state which they are?


Section 96 of the Elementary Education Act, 1870, provides that no Parliamentary Grant shall be made in aid of building, enlarging, improving, or fitting up any elementary school.
