HC Deb 04 February 1929 vol 224 c1407
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?


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.
