HC Deb 03 March 1932 vol 262 c1261
34 and 35. Lieut.-Commander AGNEW

asked the President of the Board of Education (1) if he will state the names of the secondary schools in the county of Cornwall in respect of which expenditure on building work has been sanctioned by his Department since 15th January, 1932, giving the dates in each case on which sanction was given;

(2) if any contractual obligations had been entered into with regard to the proposed expenditure on Bodmin secondary school before his circular order referring to building expenditure had been issued?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Sir Donald Maclean)

Building work has been approved at two schools in Cornwall. A proposal for alterations and additions at the Bodmin County Secondary School was originally approved by the Board in July, 1931, and was again approved on 2nd February, 1932. The local authority were not contractually committed to the expenditure on this proposal before the issue of the Board's circular 1413. The other case was the provision of a new boarding-house at the Truro High School for Girls which was approved on 3rd February, 1932. This latter project involves no cost to public funds.

Lieut.-Commander AGNEW

In the case of Bodmin, has the finance committee of the Cornwall County Council approved of the project?


As far as I know, it must have approved of it or it could not have reached me.
