HC Deb 14 February 1924 vol 169 cc1032-3W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that since the War thousands of children have been unable to obtain education in the secondary schools as they exist; and whether he proposes to take any steps to provide extended opportunity for advanced education?


Proposals for the provision of new schools and the extension of existing schools will receive my very sympathetic consideration, and I hope that I may receive from the local educa- tion authorities in the near future programmes of expansion the execution of which will substantially contribute to the removal of this defect in our public system of education.
