HC Deb 17 December 1929 vol 233 c1220W

asked the President of the Board of Education the total amount of capital borrowed by local education authorities in England and Wales and outstanding in each of the years 1914 to the last financial year, inclusive, together with the interest and sinking fund amounts, and the proportions contributed by local rates and the Board of Education, respectively?


Complete information for all the years named is not available, statistical records during the War years having been reduced to a minimum. The available figures are shown in the table below. The proportions contributed respectively by local rates and by the Board of Education cannot be stated, the Board's grants being in aid of education expenditure generally and not earmarked to particular items.
