HC Deb 07 August 1918 vol 109 cc1407-8W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether

the Treasury Grant for intermediate education in Wales will be excluded in the ascertainment of the amount of the deficiency Grant payable to local education authorities in Wales and Monmouthshire under Clause 44 (2) of the Education Bill?


I have reconsidered the matter, in consultation with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and, in view of the special grounds on which the Grant was instituted, it has been decided that the Board are justified in excluding the Grant, under the Regulations which they will make under Clause 44 (3) of the Bill.
