§ 62. Dr. HASTINGS
asked the President of the Board of Education if he can give the number of nursery schools now in existence in England and Wales, and say how many of these are open-air schools and the number of each of these two categories of nursery schools sanctioned by his Department?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
There are 40 recognised nursery schools in England and Wales; 31 of these are open-air schools and nearly all the others have good open-air facilities. Plans have been approved for 12 new nursery schools, all of which are designed on open-air lines; 15 proposals are receiving consideration, and the programmes of local education authorities for 1930–33 contain preliminary proposals for 44 further Schools detailed particulars of which have not yet been submitted.
§ Mr. CHARLES WILLIAMS
How many of these schools are situated in Wales, and in how many is the Welsh language taught?
