§ MR. TALBOT (Oxford University)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he will re-consider the case of the Church schools of Wetherby, Yorkshire, in which considerable alterations are required, and extend the period within which such alterations must be completed, as it appears that delays for which the managers are not, responsible have occurred in the approval of the necessary plans?
§ THE VICE' PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Mr. ACLAND,) York, W.R., Rotherham
These schools are to be rebuilt on a new site, and the plans for the new school were approved last month. 155 If the new buildings are put in hand at once and completed with reasonable despatch, the grant will be continued to the old school until the new one is ready. I should, perhaps, add that the delay in submitting plans was not caused by the Department, but was apparently due to local circumstances.
