HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 cc2486-7W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, seeing that a large access of children under five years of age has occurred during recent years in London elementary schools owing to the greater necessity for mothers to leave such children in the care of teachers while they themselves seek employment or are engaged in paid work, some extra provision can be made so as to avoid the present congestion?


On my present information, it does not appear that existing accommodation is insufficient, but I shall, of course, be ready to draw the attention of the local education authority to any cases of overcrowding which the hon. Member may bring to my notice.
