HC Deb 03 May 1928 vol 216 cc1883-4
22. Mr. COVE

asked the President of the Board of Education how many of the public elementary schools of the County of Nottingham, reported in 1925 as having no water supply at all, are still without a supply; what steps are being taken to make those schools comply with the Board's regulations in respect of a water supply and at what date the provision of a water supply to these schools may be expected?

Duchess of ATHOLL

My right hon. Friend has no particulars which would enable him to give a detailed reply to this question, but if the hon. Member will inform him of the name of any school at which he has reason to believe that there is no adequate water supply, my right hon. Friend would be glad to make inquiries.


Is the Noble Lady aware that the medical officer of health reported that there were 51 schools with- out water supply, and what steps have the Board taken to get a water supply for those 51 schools?

Duchess of ATHOLL

I think I must ask the hon. Member to put down a question in that form.
