HC Deb 01 May 1913 vol 52 cc1366-7
55. Mr. KING

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the Registrar-General has stated that the number of children in England and Wales who reach the age of five years shows a steady annual increase of over 3,600; whether the total school accommodation of the Kingdom is being maintained to meet this increase; and whether the Estimates of the year were framed after due consideration of this fact?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. J. A. Pease)

I am unable to identify the statement to which the hon. Member refers, but I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave to his question on this subject on the 21st April.


Would the right hon. Gentleman like me to furnish him with this statement?


I certainly should like to have verification of it.
