§ Mr. TREVELYAN
asked the President of the Board of Education if he is aware that the local education authority now at Bootle are bringing central classes to an end on 31st March; why this step is being taken; and whether any alternative or superior form of advanced education is being provided?
§ Lord E. PERCY
The Board informed the local authority last April that they would not be able to recognise these central classes after 31st March next. I understand that the authority is conducting an inquiry into the question of providing advanced instruction in the area, and I have already asked them to send representatives to confer with me in the near future so soon as this inquiry is completed.
