HC Deb 24 February 1938 vol 332 cc539-40
59. Sir Charles Cayzer

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether, when a Church of England school is instructed to increase its accommodation for juniors, there will be any contribution from his Department towards the cost of the alteration called for?

Mr. Lindsay

My Noble Friend is not aware of any powers under which the managers of a voluntary school can be "instructed" to enlarge their school. Neither the Board nor the local education authority have any power to make a contribution towards the cost of public elementary school provision for junior children.
