HC Deb 12 December 1928 vol 223 c2146W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in view of the urgency for more beds for treatment for orthopœdic diseases in children from the elementary schools in Hampshire, he will consider payment of a giant on any further expenditure incurred to provide more beds over the 12 beds now allotted for this purpose by local generosity at the Treloar Cripples' Home at Alton?


The Hampshire Education Authority are, I understand, examining the question of extending their arrangements for orthopœdic treatment for school children in their area. I am prepared to consider sympathetically any proposals for such extension which the authority may see fit to formulate. Grant will be payable on expenditure for this purpose approved by the Board in the ordinary way.
