HC Deb 20 June 1935 vol 303 cc536-7
27. Mr. LOGAN

asked the President of the Board of Education why the transfer of the Addison day schools to the managers of Holy Cross schools, Liverpool, is being held up; and, in view of a site being secured for housing, will he expedite the transfer?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Oliver Stanley)

The Board informed the local education authority on the 29th May that, subject to minor alterations, they would be prepared to approve these premises for the accommodation of the infants' department of the existing Holy Cross Roman Catholic School. The managers had proposed the removal of the boys, but the Board are of the opinion that the removal of the infants from their extremely unsatisfactory premises is the more urgent matter. If the managers accept the Board's view, I see no reason why their proposal to rent the premises for school purposes should be subject to any delay.


If a satisfactory arrangement can be come to between the education authority in Liverpool and the school managers, will it receive consideration, apart from the answer which the right hon. Gentleman has given?


I do not think that there is anything that I can add to the answer. The managers have only to fall in with the Board's proposals.
