§ MR. TALBOT (Oxford University)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he will give a Return showing the number of schools erected, or taken over, by the London School Board, which have been wholly or partially closed, or used as special departments; and the number of vacant places in existing Board schools in each division of the metropolis, with the name of each school?
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir J. E. GORST,) Cambridge University
A Return can be given of the number of schools closed, but the Department does mot think that any reliable Return could be given of those partially closed, or used as special departments. The number of vacant places will appear in the annual Report.
