§ 20. Sir WILFRID SUGDEN
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education what further provision is to be made for the borough of Leyton, Essex, by way of clinics as to the sight, hearing, throat and limb care of the school children of that borough; and will he consider dealing with the younger children in this borough upon the lines of the Margaret Macmillan type of school?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
With regard to the first part of the question, plans for a new clinic to deal with minor ailments, refraction and dental work, were approved by the Board of Education in July, 1932. The clinic is being built and is expected to be ready this year. As regards the second part of the question, my Noble Friend is unable in present financial circumstances to entertain proposals for new nursery schools.
§ Sir W. SUGDEN
With regard to the first part of the question, is the hon. Gentleman sure that the present plan of the proposed building will be sufficient to meet existing needs, and, in respect of the Margaret Macmillan type of school, will he represent to his Noble Friend the vital need which exists in this matter?
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
I understand that there are already two other clinics in Leyton. My Noble Friend is well aware of the situation in Leyton.
