§ MR. PIKE PEASE (Darlington)
To ask the President of the Board of Education if he will state the basis of the increase in the Estimate for building grants for local authorities' training colleges from the £15,000 voted for this year to £150,000 to be voted in 1907–8.
§ (Answered by Mr. McKenna.) Owing to a misprint, which does not, however, affect the total estimate, the sum which Parliament is asked to vote under this head is placed at £150,000, on Page 367418
§ (Answered by Mr. Edmund Robertson.) The following statement gives the information desired by the hon. Member:—
§ of the Estimates. The amount required is correctly stated on Page 358 to be £85,000. The increase of £70,000 over the sum voted last year is due to the anticipated increase in the claims which will mature during the next financial year, and not to any change in the regulations.
