§ Mr. STEPHEN
asked the Secretary for Scotland if his attention has been drawn to Circular 1,371, issued by the Minister 491W of Education; and what steps he intends to take to see that Scottish educational grants are not reduced as a consequence of this new policy in England?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I have no reason to anticipate that the amount of money available for distribution to Scottish education authorities in 1926–27 will fall appreciably snort of the sum that is at present being distributed under the Education Authorities (Scotland) Grant Regulations, 1925.
