HC Deb 25 March 1902 vol 105 c996
MR. ASHTON (Bedfordshire, Luton)

I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education whether, seeing that, now three months since, notice was given to close six elementary schools in the borough of Hyde, Cheshire, whereby a deficiency of 1,800 places will be created, the Board of Education have yet communicated with the local School Attendance Committee thereon; and, if not, can he state how long it will be before a notice is issued under Section 9 of the Elementary Education Act of 1870.


A notice is being prepared for publication under Section 9 of the Elementary Education Act, 1870, declaring the deficiency at not less than 1,800 school places.
