§ Mr. GROVES
asked the President of the Board of Education the number of elementary schools still on the black list, showing the various grades of such schools; and what steps he proposes to take to effect a change in this state of affairs?
§ Sir D. MACLEAN
There are still 1,527 elementary schools on the black list. Of these, 295 are in Division A of the list, 981 in Division B, and 251 in Division C. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of Circular 1413, showing that it is hoped that the Board will be able to approve for grant some expenditure for dealing with these schools.
