HC Deb 15 March 1928 vol 214 c2087
24. Colonel HOWARD-BURY

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in view of the fact that the school children at South Woodham, in Essex, have to cross the River Crouch by boat, and have to wait about in all weathers for a boat to take them across to the school at Hockley, he will expedite the building of a school in South Woodham?


I understand that the local authority are already negotiating for the purchase of a site for a new school at South Woodham, and I shall be glad to do anything I can to assist them in the matter. I am sending them a copy of my hon. and gallant Friend's question and my reply.


Would the Noble Lord do his best to expedite the building of this school before next winter?


I am doing everything in my power, but it is for the local authority to do it, and they are moving.
