HC Deb 18 January 1944 vol 396 c58W
Sir J. Mellor

asked the President of the Board of Education if he will give an estimate, capital expenditure being expressed in terms of loan charges, of the ultimate annual cost of their schools to the religious denominations, respectively, on the assumption that, in aided or special agreement schools, they continue to educate the same percentage of all children of compulsory school age as in 1938.

Mr. Ede

The capital expenditure which will fall on the religious denominations in respect of auxiliary schools will depend on the manner in which the managers exercise the options offered to them under Clause 14 of the Education Bill. These options include that of the controlled school.
