§ MR. ALFRED HUTTON (York, W. R., Morley)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, what has been the increase of grants under Articles 104 and 105 of the Code as to Voluntary Schools and to Board Schools in the year 1894–5 over the year 1893–4; and, what has been the increase of the grant under Section 97 of the Act of 1870 in the same period?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
Payments under Article 104 have increased by £1,669 for Voluntary Schools and have decreased by £23 for Board Schools. Payments under Article 105 have increased by £2,115 for Voluntary Schools and by £251 for Board Schools. The increase in the grant under Section 97 is £4,854 6s. 7d. ["Hear, hear!"]
§ MR. J. M. WHITE (Forfar)
I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether the Government will delay allocating the Scotch equivalent of the new English education grant till the Scotch Members have had an opportunity of expressing their views?
MR. GRAHAM MURRAY
In the event of an increase being made in the English grant the Scottish aspect of the matter must necessarily be considered by Parliament, when the proposals of the Government in that connection will be submitted.
