Letter to Her Majesty's Inspectors respecting Incomes.

Committee of Council on Education, Council Office,

Whitehall, 13th August, 1844. The first five months' tour of inspection through your district has made you acquainted with the trustees and managers of the parochial schools aided by grants from this department, and enabled you to ascertain the condition of the schools

, the qualification of the masters and mistresses, and to form some estimate of the probability of their exerting a beneficial influence on the character and position of the labouring population. The Lord President is desirous that you should record your impressions on these and similar topics, at the close of this first tour of five months, and that for this purpose you should, as soon as convenient to you, avail yourself of the period devoted to general Reports (as a recess from other labors) in the scheme of periodical inspection for England and Wales.

When this Report is completed, the Lord President is desirous of directing your attention in an especial manner during the ensuing five months' tour, to an important subject of inquiry, which (without neglecting the matters which constantly press themselves upon your attention in relation to the condition of schools) may form the chief topic of your Second Report for this year. This Report his Lordship hopes may be presented at the opening of the Parliamentary Session in February, 1845.

Since the formation of the Committee of Council, in 1839-40, 170,0001. have been granted by Parliament for the promotion of education in Great Britain. This fund has been devoted almost exclusively to the erection of school-buildings, and very recently of schoolmasters' houses. The greatest caution has been exercised so to employ the public grant in aid of local efforts, as at all times to stimulate the contributions of charitable individuals and societies, and never in any case to supersede such exertions and sacrifices. Since 1839-40 upwards of 600,0001., of which 170,0001. was contributed by Parliament, have been expended in the erection of schools and schoolmasters' houses. During six years preceding 1839-40, the Treasury had devoted 20,0001. per annum to similar objects, and the sum thus expended represents a combined outlay from public and private sources in six years, from 1833 to 1839, of upwards of 400,0001. in the erection of school-buildings. So that, since the year 1833-4, the Government have contributed 290,0001. in aid of the exertions of charitable individuals and associations to promote public education in Great Britain ; and these grants have been met by contributions from the public, amounting to between 700,0001. and 800,0001., so in the course of the last 11 years upwards of one million sterling has been devoted to the erection of school
