§ MR. GRETTON (Rutland)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education when it is expected that the Return 402 dealing with the square-foot basis of accommodation in public elementary schools will be issued.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Mr. MCKENNA, Monmouthshire, N.)
I do not know to what Return the hon. Member is referring; but, as I have already intimated, the fresh consideration of the premises of all the many thousands of elementary schools that are on the eight-foot basis and the reassessment of their accommodation in a manner that shall afford not less than nine square-feet for infants and ten for older scholars must be a slow process, and I cannot yet name a date by which we can hope for it to be completed.
§ MR. GRETTON
Was any action taken by the Board of Education on the lines indicated before the issue of the Return?
§ MR. McKENNA
There is no Return of all the schools, but each school is being dealt with separately.
