HC Deb 08 April 1937 vol 322 c369W
Captain Bullock

asked the President of the Board of Education whether a grant of 75 per cent., if approved by the local education authorities, would be sanctioned in the case of the purchase by a denomination of an existing school at present owned by the local education authorities for the purpose of conversion into a denominational senior school?

Mr. Stanley

Before proceeding in such a case as is mentioned in the question, the local education authority would have to satisfy the board on various points mentioned in Section 17 (4) of the Education Act, 1921, and in Section 8 (4) of the Education Act, 1936. In these circumstances, it would be impossible for me to express any opinion except upon consideration of the facts of the particular case.
