HC Deb 13 August 1913 vol 56 cc2524-5W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether in any further Education Bill the Aid Grant will be revised so as to rectify the present disablement of London to earn any equal Grant to the rest of England and Wales?


As I explained in my speech on the First Reading of the Education (No. 2) Bill this Session, it is our intention to introduce in connection with the Education Bill next Session a system of Grants in which regard will be had both to the rateable value of each area and the expenditure per child. The county of London will share with other areas the advantages of a more equitable system of Grants.
