HC Deb 06 April 1922 vol 152 cc2443-4W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether the Somerset county education committee has decided to discontinue the maintenance of voluntary evening continuation schools, many of which have been in existence for 30 years; whether, since this decision will mean that young persons desiring further education in hundreds of parishes in Somerset will be deprived of any facilities for such further education, he will say what steps he proposes to take to secure that, where a reasonable number of students in any parish desire continued education, proper facilities will be provided?


I am not aware that the county education committee for Somerset have arrived at such a decision as is suggested, but I will make inquiry.
