§ Mr. WARDLE
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that there are not sufficient free places in the public elementary schools at Grantham to accommodate the children, where there are about fifty children who cannot be provided with such accommodation; and what he proposes to do in the matter?
§ Mr. J. A. PEASE
In August last the Board wrote to the local education authority urging upon them the need for more adequate provision of elementary school accommodation in Grantham. Subsequently the Board were informed that a sub-committee had been appointed to consider the whole question of school supply and that the decision of the local education authority would be communicated to the Board early in February. The Board have not yet received the proposals of the authority, but a communication was sent them yesterday asking that they should be submitted without further delay.
