§ MR. STANLEY LEIGHTON (Shropshire, Oswestry)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he will reconsider the proposed alteration to Article 16F of Schedule VII. of the Day School Code, 1898, which requires that the accommodation of an infant school shall be no longer calculated at eight square feet for each child as hitherto, but at nine 385 square feet, inasmuch as the said addition will largely increase the cost of the building of infant schools?
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir JOHN GORST,) Cambridge University
The Committee of Council are of opinion that at least nine square feet per child in infant schools is necessary for the health of the children and the efficiency of the school. The Regulation will be enforced in all new schools.
