HC Deb 10 May 1923 vol 163 c2566
60. Mr. PALING

asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware that the West Riding County Council Education Committee made application in March, 1921, to be allowed to erect a hut in which to provide instruction in domestic subjects for the senior scholars attending five elementary schools in the Ecclesfield area; that approval was not granted, but that owing to the urgency of the question and the fact that the Ecclesfield Education Sub-committee have continued to press strongly for this provision another application was made in March of this year which has again been refused; and that a hut suitable for this purpose has been stored in the playground of the Ecclesfield council school for nearly two years; and, in view of this fact and the obvious necessity for the provision of such instruction, will he reconsider the whole question and give the necessary approval for the work to proceed?


I will give further consideration to this case on its merits.
