HC Deb 29 March 1909 vol 3 cc27-8

asked whether it would be necessary for the Board to insist upon considerable structural alterations in elementary schools in order that the standard as to the number of classes in elementary schools proposed in the new Regulations might be secured and sufficient classrooms provided?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Runciman)

I do not apprehend that any considerable structural alterations will necessarily be required.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that many local authorities are of opinion that considerable structural alterations will be required; and, in the event of their being necessary, will the Board of Education be prepared to make a grant to meet the increased cost?


I can only consider each case as it arises.
