HC Deb 26 November 1928 vol 223 cc44-5
74. Mr. DAY

asked the President of the Board of Education whether his attention has been drawn to the limited playing accommodation provided for school children in overcrowded areas; and whether he will consider the introduction of regulations allowing for adequate play rooms, either in the schools or in the grounds with coverings for bad weather?

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

I am always ready to consider proposals for providing improved playing facilities for children in overcrowded areas, and I believe local authorities generally know that I am anxious that such facilities should be provided wherever the school site renders it possible.


Has there been any-considerable correspondence between the Board of Education and local authorities on the subject?


Yes, any amount.
