HC Deb 10 November 1926 vol 199 c1092W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he has received a request for extending the premises of the Rivington and Black-rod Grammar School; if so, what decision has been reached in this connection; and, in view of the pressure on this space by the continuous increase in the number of students, he will facilitate the extension of the premises in the near future?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. This proposal did not seem urgent enough to justify the work being put in hand in advance of the local authority's programme, but I expect to be able to approve its being undertaken in the first year of the programme period, if the authority so desire.
