Sir GILBERT PARKER
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has received a communication from the Northfleet Lawn Council protesting against the decision of the Kent Education Committee to spend £600 in providing extra cloak-room accommodation at the Lawn schools without drawing the attention of the managers to the matter or giving the managers an opportunity of considering their proposals; and, if so, what action he proposes to take in the matter?
§ Mr. TREVELYAN
My right hon. Friend has received a communication from the managers of the Northfleet Lawn Council School of the character indicated. The relations between a local education authority and the managers of a school provided by the authority are not a matter coming within the jurisdiction of the Board of Education.
