HC Deb 21 February 1924 vol 169 c2000W

asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware that serious overcrowding exists in the Highgate and Goldthorpe elementary schools, and that the attendance of those children who are taught in the wooden huts is seriously affected due to colds and influenza; and will he urge forward the erection of a new school to meet the needs of this fast developing district?


I will inquire without delay into the conditions at these two schools. My hon. Friend, however, will be interested to learn that plans io[...] the enlargement of the Highgate Council school by the addition of 200 places were approved by the Board in November last.
