HC Deb 18 April 1910 vol 16 cc1851-2W

asked the Lord Advocate whether he is aware that school children attending the Bragar public school, island of Lewis, have recently been required by the headmaster to carry peats to school; and, seeing that this action on the part of the headmaster is in contravention of an order issued by the Scottish Office some years ago, will care be taken to prevent the order being disregarded either at Bragar or other schools in the island?


I am aware of a report by the District Sanitary Officer to the effect that the Barvas School Board have been called upon to carry out certain sanitary improvements in connection with the Bragar public school. I am informed that the School Board have instructed their architect to arrange for the erection of new accommodation.
