§ 27. Mr. HAYDN JONES
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.
