Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the President of the Board of Education what is the 1503W approximate amount by which he estimates he will reduce the present educational charges on the Exchequer by carrying out the recommendations of the Committee on National Expenditure to transfer certain expenses from the National Exchequer to the local rates?
§ Mr. FISHER
I would ask the hon. Member to await the presentation of the Estimates, but in the meantime I may perhaps refer him to the answer given yesterday by me, on behalf of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for Midlothian and Peebles (Sir J. Hope).
