The

column

4

sum entered in
includes
£204,000 payable direct to the Managers of
voluntary schools in respect of children for
whose maintenance local authorities are re-
sponsible. This sum represents one-half of the
cost of their maintenance under all heads of
expenditure authorised by the Secretary of
State. The remaining half is received by the
schools direct from the local authorities by
means of a flat rate fixed annually for the
schools as a whole.

The balance, viz., £70,000, of the sum in column 4
is payable direct to local authorities in respect
of children maintained by them in their own
schools.

Grants not exceeding 50 per cent. of cost are
made to six provincial museums in respect of
the purchase of objects, principally casts and
reproductions.

The sum of £6,031,000, representing approximately
54 per cent. of the estimated expenditure of
education authorities, was received by those
authorities from the Education (Scotland) Fund,
the major part of this amount being distributed
on the basis of average attendance, number of
teachers and rateable value.
