One Friend of the Institute spends some of her leisure time casually perusing government accounts — regardless of the danger of apoplexy. This is an interesting past-time that many more citizens should adopt (if healthy enough to withstand the aggravation). It can lead one to interesting findings such as these ones under the 1996/97 report of Secretary of State Grants.
- Here is a grant to the Cross Cultural Learning Centre, London for $175,757.
- And … here is a grant to the London Cross Cultural Learner Centre for $266,391 (Settlement and Adaptation)
- Er, what about this one to the Cross Cultural Learning Centre, London for $261,696 as a part of the LINC Program.
- And finally, there is this one to The London Cross Cultural Learner of $246,887 for the same program.
Three names, three programs, four grants …. and $950,731 all for one group. Hmmm ….
By the way, annual Secretary of State Grants to the Mackenzie Institute have amounted to $0.00, every year since 1986.
