HC Deb 28 January 1954 vol 522 c1946
20. Sir R. Acland

asked the Minister of Education whether she will publish a table showing the distribution by counties of primary schools condemned as structurally inadequate before 1930 and still in use

Miss Horsbrugh

I assume that the hon. Member has in mind those schools which, in 1925, were condemned as unsuitable for continued recognition, but which were not subsequently removed from the list and are still in use. I will circulate a table showing the distribution of these schools by administrative areas. I would, however, emphasise that the 1925 list is now quite out of date and cannot be taken as a significant guide to the most urgent building needs.

Sir R. Acland

Would it not be possible for the right hon. Lady to publish more up-to-date figures, which would be a significant guide?

Miss Horsbrugh

No, I do not think it would.
