HC Deb 20 March 1934 vol 287 cc1029-30
29. Mr. MAXTON

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that complaints have been made in reports that recent economies in educational expenditure have resulted in inadequate cleaning and repainting of schools to an extent injurious to the health and happiness of the children; and what action he proposes to take to remedy this?


The reports of His Majesty's Inspectors do not support any suggestion of the kind referred to in the question, and I have no reason to think that this important aspect of school provision is being neglected. But if the hon. Member has any other reports in mind I shall be glad to look into the matter if he will let me have the particulars.
