§ 67. Sir S. McAdden
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the need to assist local authorities at present engaged on the preparation of their rate demands for next year, if he will make an early statement of his policy with regard to educational expenditure being borne by the Exchequer.
§ Mr. Diamond
The usual General Grant Order, covering next year's expenditure, will be laid shortly. I do not think we can adopt the time-table suggested by the hon. Member for completing our general review of central and local finance.
