HC Deb 01 August 1935 vol 304 c2875W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has considered the resolutions passed at annual conferences of the Association of Education Committees and similar bodies during the past two or three years requesting the appointment of a suitable committee to consider the principles of the grant formula for education and the distribution of grants for education among the various local education authorities; and whether he can state when he proposes to set up such an inquiry, in view of the fact that the present formula for the distribution of grants is unrelated to existing circumstances?


My attention has been drawn to the resolutions referred to, but I am not yet in a position to make any statement on the subject.
