§ 32. Sir JOHN HASLAM
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education if, seeing the saving to local rates effected by non-provided schools, he will consider the advisability of introducing a Measure to give him powers to make proportionate monetary grants towards the cost of erecting and equipping new schools by religious bodies in the new housing areas?
§ Mr. RAMSBOTHAM
My Noble Friend regrets that he is not in a position to make any statement on this subject.
§ Sir J. HASLAM
Will the hon. Gentleman draw the attention of his Noble 1289 Friend to the beneficial effect of these non-provided schools on the community, and the hardship on the schools if they are compulsorily closed by a Government Department owing to the moving of population?
