HC Deb 21 February 1924 vol 169 c1988W

asked the President of the Board of Education how many public elementary schools, provided and non-provided, which were condemned by the Board of Education in 1914 as unfit, are still in use; and what steps are being taken to get the local education authorities to deal with the situation?


It would require time and labour to trace in the records of the Board the present, condition of all school premises to which ten years ago the Board had taken serious exception. I understand that, both during the War and since, endeavours have been made to deal with the worst cases, and I am now hoping to have the co-operation of the local education authorities in improving or replacing as soon as practicable buildings which may be found either by the authorities or by His Majesty's inspectors to be unsuitable or inadequate.
