HC Deb 25 July 1935 vol 304 cc1987-8
12. Mr. CLEARY

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that there is no elementary school in the whole of the Childwall Ward of Liverpool; that children between the ages of five and nine years have a 25 minutes walk to school; and, in view of the fact that secondary schools and training colleges have been or are to be erected in the district, what action he is prepared to take in the matter?


My attention has not previously been drawn to the point raised by the hon. Member, and I am making inquiries into it.


In view of the fact that this is a complaint that has stretched over a very long period, and secondary schools have been built in this area, will the right hon. Gentleman make specially strong representations?


I had better make inquiries first and representations afterwards.
