§ Mr. RAMSAY MACDONALD
asked the President of the Board of Education, with regard to the 45 new schools and 21 enlargements of schools proposed in London, in how many cases have plans been submitted to the Board of Education and approved by them; in how many cases have contracts been signed; and whether he is satisfied that all this additional school accommodation is being provided with due despatch?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
Plans have been approved for 10 new schools and eight enlargements, providing accommodation for 9,130 children. I have no information as to the number of cases in which contracts have been signed, but I will make inquiries of the London County Council.
