§ MR. COBB
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he will inquire from the correspondent of the Radway School, in Warwickshire, how long it has been closed, and when it will be reopened; and whether he can state what is the maximum length which is recognised by the Department as proper 13 for the summer holidays at an elementary school in a rural district?
§ MR. ACLAND
I will make the inquiry suggested by the hon. Member. The length of holidays given at a public elementary school rests in the discretion of the managers, the only condition laid down by the Department being that the school must meet at least 400 times in the school year.
