§ 21. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education the number of nursery schools in operation, and the number of new nursery schools which have been sanctioned by the Department since 1st October, 1931?
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
The number of nursery schools at present recognised by the Board is 56. No new proposals for the provision of nursery schools have been approved since 1st October last, but there are 15 cases in which the provision of the schools had been approved before that date and in which formal recognition has since been given or will shortly be given.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Do I understand that the Board are not now actually discouraging an increase of these schools?
