HC Deb 22 April 1926 vol 194 cc1361-2

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has received an appeal from the Annual Assembly and the Parish Council of Wribbenhall, Worcestershire, against the proposal to build new schools for the parish, in view of the increase of rates which will result, pointing out that the present schools are large enough to accommodate all the children of school age, and suggesting for consideration, as an alternative scheme, the possibility of securing the present Church of England or council school buildings and making certain necessary alterations therein and whether he will say what action he proposes to take in the matter?


I have received the appeal in question, and have asked the local authority for their observations upon it; but I am not in a position to make any statement on the matter at this stage, as the notices issued by the authority under Section 18 of the Education Act are still current.
