MR. LLOYD MORGAN (Carmarthenshire, W.)
To ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he is aware that the elementary school at Mydrim, in the County of Carmarthen, has been closed since the 30th of May last; and whether he will state what steps are being taken by the Board of Education to provide for the educational requirements of the children in the parish, and when and under what conditions the school will be reopened.
(Answered by Sir John Gorst.)The school at Mydrim is still open, and will, it is understood, be kept open. Some of the Mydrim children attend the Banky-felin Board School under the School Board of Llanfihangel Abercowin, to which Mydrim has been made a contributory district. Under these circumstances the Board of Education do not consider it necessary to set up a School Board in Mydrim while the Education Bill is pending in Parliament.
