§ Mr. NICHOLLS
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the public elementary school at Eye, in the county of the Soke of Peterborough, was closed on Thursday and Friday, 24th and 25th June, without the consent of the managers or of the local education authority; whether seven days' notice of this closure was given to His Majesty's inspector, as directed by Article 56 of the Code of Regulations for Elementary Schools; and, if not, whether he will, as provided by the article, make a substantial deduction from the annual grant, in order that the scholars and parents may be protected from similar treatment in the future?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. C. P. Trevelyan)
Inquiry is being made, the result of which will be communicated to the hon. Member.
