§ Mr. SHORT
asked the President of the Board of Education whether his 561W Department has refused sanction in any district to proposals for the feeding of necessitous children; and whether any applications for permission to erect nursery schools have been refused; and, if so, in what districts or towns?
§ Lord E. PERCY
The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative. As regards the second part, no such proposal has been rejected by my Department, but in one case the authority failed to secure sanction to raise a loan for the purpose, in view of the financial position of the area. The area in question is that of the Waltham-stow authority.
