§ MR. ROBERT SPENCER (Northamptonshire, Mid)
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether his attention has been called to the want of school accommodation at New Duston, and whether lie has received a petition from the inhabitants respecting this lack of accommodation; and whether he can see his way to take the necessary steps to secure that the desired accommodation shall be provided.
§ SIR J. GORST
Yes; the hon. Member presented me with the petition a few days ago. The urban part of the United School District of Duston has been incorporated in the borough of Northampton, and there is, according to our information, ample school accommodation in the rural I part left outside. New Duston as a separate parish is unknown to the Beard of Education.
