HC Deb 28 October 1912 vol 43 c65W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is in a position to state how soon the Board will be able to issue regulations for the purpose of giving practical effect to the promise of the Chancellor of the Exchequer to make a State Grant to certain training establishments towards the cost of training boys for the sea service or to give the House an assurance that the matter is being pressed forward?


My right hon. Friend is in communication with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and he can assure the hon. Member that there will be no avoidable delay.
