HC Deb 16 June 1884 vol 289 c405

asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether it is the intention of the London School Board, as announced by Mr. Whiteley, one of the Members of the Board, to build in connection with the Balham Board School, a central hall where entertainments such as the distribution of prizes and the like can be hold "with much more comfort and without crowding," (to use Mr. Whiteley's words); and, whether this expenditure is one which can properly be incurred at the expense of the rates?


The only school under the London School Board in Balham appears to be the Oldridge Road Board School. The School Board have not yet addressed any proposal to the Education Department for building a central hall in connection with this school, nor are we aware of any such intention.
