HC Deb 21 January 1937 vol 319 cc330-1
28. Mr. George Griffiths

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he will give, with figures to 31st December, 1935, and, if possible, 1936, the table of schools removed from the black list which appears on page 10 of the 1934 Report of the Board of Education?

Mr. Stanley

As the answer contains a number of figures, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

of the committee on the safety of schoolchildren; and, if so, what action he proposes to take to give effect to those recommendations?

Mr. Stanley

Copies of the report of the committee were circulated to all local education authorities and schools in England and Wales in April last and at the same time I sent a circular, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy, to all local education authorities asking them to give most careful consideration to the recommendations of the report.

Mr. Viant

Was there any consultation with the Ministry of Transport in connection with the recommendations?

Mr. Stanley

Of course, consultations took place on the committee which issued them.
