§ 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 45 believe local authorities generally know that I am anxious that such facilities should be provided wherever the school site renders it possible.
