§ 18. Mr. MELLER
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been called to the lack of elementary school accommodation in the Galpins Road and Sherwood Park districts of Mitcham; and whether, seeing that the provision of additional accommodation is being held up by delay on the part of his Department in approving the plans, he will see that the cause of the delay is removed?
§ Lord E. PERCY
There has been no delay on the part of my Department in dealing with this case. My attention was first drawn to the shortage of school accommodation on the 19th September last, and I at once communicated with the local education authority. The final plans for the new school were received on the 6th instant, and they have already been approved.
