§ Mr. URE
The complaint referred to, which appeared in the Report of the Medical Officer of Health for the county, of date April, 1910, was brought to the notice of the School Board, who in September last informed the Department that the parts of the premises complained of were now being kept in a clean condition, that the arrangements were such that there is no school in the parish where a child need have any difficulty in getting drinking water, and that a supply of cloak room pegs had been furnished for use where required. It is understood that the Board have been to considerable expense generally in effecting repairs during the past year, and that the Medical Officer is now satisfied with the state of the premises in the circumstances.
§ Mr. WEIR
asked whether the Secretary for Scotland has received a memorandum from the Educational Institute of Scotland relative to the schools in the parishes of Barvas, Lochs, and Uig, Island of Lewis; and will he state what action he proposes to take in regard to the institute's recommendation that the medical officer of the Local Government Board should be asked to report as to the sanitary condition of the schools.
