§ 64. Lieut.-Colonel Sir J. NORTON-GRIFFITHS
asked the President of the Board of Education if his Department will get in touch with the various educational authorities controlling seaside schools with a view to the grounds of such schools being loaned for the encampment of scouts during the months of July and August when the schools are on holiday and closed?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Herbert Fisher)
The question of lending school premises for the use of boy scouts and similar juvenile organisations is a matter for the local education authorities and school governing bodies controlling the schools, and applications from the organisations desiring to use the premises should be addressed to them. I sympathise with the object which the hon. and gallant Member has in view, but I do not think the intervention of the Board is required.
