MR. BEIDGEMAN (Shropshire, Oswestry)
To ask the President of the Board of Education if he will state what steps, if any, the Board of Education have taken to satisfy themselves of the necessity for a new school at Bylchau, Denbighshire, as required by Section 8 of The Education Act, 1902 after an objection has been duly lodged.
(Answered by Mr. McKenna.) The Board satisfied itself by a careful examination of the evidence furnished by the local education authority and by the inspector as to the existence in the district of a real demand, on the part of parents, for the establishment of a council school within the parish of Bylchau. No facts were alleged in the appeal subsequently received which were not outweighed by the evidence already in the Board's possession.
