HC Deb 27 March 1928 vol 162 cc318-9W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether the local Scottish education authorities or the Scottish Education Department inspect and pass as fit for the purposes of education the necessary buildings?

Captain ELLIOT

The maintenance of the great majority of school buildings is in the hands of the education authorities, but grants are paid only on a certificate from His Majesty's Inspector of Schools that the premises are suitable, or on an undertaking that improvements required by the Scottish Education Department will be carried out.
