HC Deb 08 December 1961 vol 650 cc195-6W
Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state the names, location and net rateable value of the private fee-paying schools in Scotland to which he makes a grant, which are regarded as charitable, in accordance with the Income Tax Acts.

Mr. Maclay
