HC Deb 29 March 1922 vol 152 c1324
103 and 104. Major STEEL

asked the President of the Board of Education (1) whether he will consider the postponement of the alterations contemplated for Southlands Grammar School. New Romney, at a total cost of £4,400, in view of the fact that the present attendance is very small and in order that the ratepayers may not be burdened with the half of this outlay at a time when the present rates are such a crushing burden;

(2) whether he is aware that five, teachers are employed at Southlands Grammar School, New Romney, for the education of 54 scholars; and will he insist on a reduction of this staff in order that public money may be saved?


I do not know precisely how the matter stands at the present moment, but I am making inquiries.
