§ MR. WEIR (ROSS and Cromarty)
To ask the Lord Advocate whether he is aware that although 300 children attend Aird School, in the parish of Stornoway, the playground is devoid of shelter; and will he ascertain whether some kind of protection from the weather can be provided.
(Answered by Mr. A. Graham Murray.) The Department does not in all cases require that outside shelters should be provided in the playgrounds, nor is opinion unanimous as to the advantage of such shelters for use in severe weather. As at present advised, my Lords hold that it is a matter which may be left to the School Board with such suggestions as His Majesty's inspector may make.
