HC Deb 15 March 1932 vol 263 cc195-6W

asked the President of the Board of Education the names of the 29 authorities which it is estimated will receive the additional grants paid to necessitous areas?


I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the statement on page 15 of the Memorandum on the Board of Education Estimates, to the effect that in the coming financial year the 29 authorities which qualified, in 1929–30, for the additional grants to necessitous areas will receive the same amounts as in that year. The list of these 29 authorities is given below, but, as explained in the Memorandum, these are not the only authorities which will receive additional grants in the coming year.
