SIR,-The fact that our four million Catholics have to raise a Schools bill of some sixty million pounds in the next 20 years, even when translated into the fact that this means sixpence a week for every Catholic man. woman and child during that period, has evidently not impressed the Ministry of Education sufficiently. For the Ministry's memorandum rejecting the Hierachy's new proposals discounts this bill heavily. on the score that (for example) part of it is for new schools. which cannot be started yet because of the national economic crisis.

But where the Schools bill pinches is in respect of the money to be found now. For many parishes. the sum to be found in the next year or

two is already fixed. Could you give examples of this if your readers care to supply them to you? The fact that the so-many families of such and such a parish have to raise so-much in the next year or two years, or lose their existing school or go without a new one. has an undeniable impressiveness that no critic can ignore.
