HC Deb 20 June 1907 vol 176 cc586-7
MR. HIGHAM (Yorkshire, W.R., Sowerby)

To ask the President of the Board of Education if Reports have been made to him as to the unfit state of the Heyhouses School, St. Anne's-on-the-Sea, both sanitarily and educationally; and what steps he proposes to take in regard thereto.

(Answered by Mr. McKenna.) I have received a Report from His Majesty's inspector, calling attention to the unsatisfactory condition of this school, and correspondence has passed with the local education authority upon the subject. The managers propose to effect a reconstruction of the premises, including a considerable enlargement, in respect of which public notice has been given under Section 8 of the Education Act, 1902. An appeal against the proposed enlargement, signed by ten ratepayers in the district, has been received by the Board, and it will be their duty to determine the question at issue under Section 9 of that Act.
