§ 68. Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware that all elementary school playing grounds are closed immediately school hours end and also during holidays; and whether, in view of the dangers of the street and the urgent need of playgrounds in all the poorer districts, he will authorise the keeping open of the school grounds?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
In some areas, including London, arrangements are made to keep the school playgrounds open when the schools are not in session and the Board aid arrangements of this kind. This is a matter which is within the discretion 616 of the school authorities, and I need hardly add that any schemes for providing children with better opportunities for play have my cordial sympathy.
