HC Deb 27 March 1919 vol 114 c630W

asked the President of the Board of Education if he will supply a table showing the education rate, the amount raised by a 1d. rate, and the number of scholars educated in London, the boroughs in all the home counties contiguous to the county of London, and the towns of Brighton, Bournemouth, Torquay, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Exeter, and Bath?


I will send the hon. Member a table giving the figures for the year 1916–17, the latest for which tabulated information is available. These figures give the rate equivalent to the net expenditure of the authorities which falls on the rates, as distinguished from the actual rate levied.
