HC Deb 20 August 1894 vol 29 c25

On behalf of the hon. Member for the Tunbridge Division of Kent, I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether the managers of Painscastle National School, Hay, have been ordered by the Department to make extensive alterations within 12 months, including the provision of a cloak room and a new store; whether he is aware that the school possesses now a large porch fitted up as cloak room, and is well warmed by a fireplace; and whether he will make further inquiries before these demands are insisted on?


In the last Annual Report on this school, after the inspection in May, the managers were told that a cloak room should be provided, and that a stove was needed to heat the school properly. Her Majesty's Inspector stated that there was no cloak room, and that the children's clothes were hung on pegs round the school room. Any representations the managers make will be duly considered.
