§ 55. Sir A. POWNALL
asked the President of the Board of Education how much has been spent by local education authorities in building extensions, in view of the proposed raising of the school age?
§ Sir C. TREVELYAN
I am unable to give any figure for the expenditure incurred on building extensions in preparation for the raising of the school leaving age, as it is not possible to differentiate capital expenditure directly referable to this object from other expenditure on new accommodation.
§ Mr. SMITHERS
Is it not impossible for local education authorities to submit building schemes until the boundaries have been settled?
