HC Deb 29 June 1926 vol 197 c975

asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the scheme of the Kesteven local education authority for dealing with unsatisfactory non-provided school buildings; and whether, in view of the provisions of the Education Act, 1902, approval of the scheme will be withheld?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Lord Eustace Percy)

The terms of the scheme have not been officially communicated to me by the authority, but I have seen a reference to it in the Press. As regards the second part of the question, I can only say that any application for the consent of my Department to the transfer of a non-provided school on the lines of such a scheme would necessarily be considered in the light of the particular circumstances of the school and the requirements of the statute.
