§ MR. GEORGE WHITE (Norfolk, N. W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the case of Terrington, North. West Norfolk, where the managers of the elementary school have definitely given notice to close the school on the 25th March next; and will he state what action (if any) he proposes to take to prevent the children being without instruction between that date and the 30th September, which is the day suggested by the Norfolk County Council for taking over the schools.
*THE SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Sir WILLIAM ANSON,) Oxford University
The Board of Education have received information that the managers of the three schools at Terrington, St. Clements, are unable for financial reasons to carry on the schools after 31st March next. The Board, however, are in communication with the managers with a view to inducing them, if possible, to continue the schools until the local authority is in a position to take them over.
