HC Deb 30 March 1925 vol 182 c943
65. Lieut.-Colonel GAULT

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that the work of rebuilding the infants' department of the Wiveliscombe county school, destroyed by fire on 7th December, 1923, has not been commenced; and if he will make inquiries into the cause of the delay and take steps to have the work of reconstruction expedited?

Duchess of ATHOLL

There has been some delay owing to the necessity of deciding upon the future organisation of this school, but my right hon. Friend is expediting the consideration of the final plans of the new building which is to replace the existing temporary premises, and he has no reason to doubt that the authority will put the work in hand with all possible despatch.
