HC Deb 10 April 1922 vol 153 c15

asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the report of the sanitary surveyor of the Auckland Eural Council as to the condition of the infants' school, Horwich, in which it is stated that the schools were worse than cowsheds; whether he has received any report as to the condition of these schools; and what action he proposes to take?


I assume that the question relates to the Church of England school at Hunwick in the County of Durham. The Board have received a copy of a report of the medical officer of health upon the premises, which is certainly severe but does not contain the statement mentioned. They are in communication with the local education authority and school managers.
