§ 70. Mr. HARRIS
asked the President of the Board of Education what progress has been made in the organisation of the nursery schools during the last 12 months; and if any new ones have been started during that period?
§ Lord E. PERCY
One new nursery school has been opened during the last 12 months; two schools are in course of erection. I have approved in principle the provision by the county council of two new schools in London, and I have also received an application for the recognition of a school in London under voluntary management. Four proposals by local authorities, and one by a voluntary body of managers, in the provinces are also under consideration.
