§ MR. SHACKLETON (Lancashire, Clitheroe)
To ask the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the proposal of the Educational Committee of the Lancashire County Council to close the council school at Worsthorne and to extend a denominational school in the same area; and whether such a proceeding will receive the sanction of the Board of Education.
1589 (Answered by Mr. Birrel.) I am not aware of any proposal on the part of the Education Committee of the Lancashire County Council of the nature referred to by the hon. Member, but I may add that so lately as June 2nd last a site was approved by the Board for a new council school.
