§ SIR JOHN BRUNNER (Cheshire, Northwich)
To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will, on an early day, put on the Paper the clause to be proposed to the Education (England and Wales) Bill to carry out the provision by which the counties should give aid to those districts in their areas which happen to be specially burdened.
(Answer.) The Amendment to carry out the provision referred to was placed on the Paper on 23rd June. It will be found as an Amendment to insert after "charge," in Clause 13, page 5, line 36, the words "such portion as they think fit, not being less than one-half or more than three-quarters of," and a corresponding Amendment on the same clause and page, line 41.—(Treasury.)
