HC Deb 06 February 1929 vol 224 c1798W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether the grant to the education authorities of the school in the Rhondda Valley, referred to by him in his speech of 29th November as literally falling about the ears of the children, is a grant provided merely in the sense that a grant has been offered by the Board for the purpose of rebuilding, or a grant actually paid to that authority for that purpose?


A grant-in-aid of the authority's expenditure on rebuilding cannot, of course, be paid if no such expenditure is incurred.
