§ MR. CARLILE (Hertfordshire, St. Albans)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Education whether he will state the reason why the Board of Education refused to sanction a council school at the village of Wentbridge, in the West Riding of Yorkshire.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Mr. MCKENNA,) Monmouthshire, N.
210 The Board did not refuse to sanction a council school, but suggested to the local education authority that, in view of assurances given by the managers of the existing voluntary school that rebuilding would be carried out forthwith, they should withdraw their proposal, which the Board understand was done.
§ MR. CARLILE
Did the West Riding Education Authority on that occasion give the right hon. Gentleman incorrect information on the subject?
