HC Deb 29 July 1902 vol 112 c22
MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the proposals in the Education Bill for handing over the control of secular instruction in the denominational schools of England and Wales to the local education authorities, he will grant a Return showing with regard to the school buildings of these schools, who are the present owners of the buildings, what is their approximate value, and what are the conditions under which they are let to existing school managers.


The information such a Return would embrace is not in possession of the Board of Education, and I do not think any public advantage would be derived from the return in any way commensurate with the length of time and great expense it would involve in making the necessary inquiries from the managers of some 14,000 schools.
