HC Deb 30 July 1894 vol 27 c1261
MR. TALBOT (Oxford University)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether there is at Anderby Church School, Lincolnshire, a porch which is used as a cloakroom; whether, nevertheless, the Department have ordered an additional porch and cloakroom, either separate or combined; whether the existing porch measures 7½ feet by 51½ feet; and whether that is sufficient for a school with an average attendance of 36?


The existing porch at this school measures 7½ feet by 4½ feet, and was considered by Her Majesty's Inspector to be insufficient. The managers have submitted plans for a new porch and cloakroom combined, which are now under consideration. The present porch seems hardly large enough for a cloakroom, even for so small a school, but if the managers press to be allowed to retain it unaltered I will consider the matter further.
