HC Deb 23 July 1931 vol 255 c1703W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of schools in urban and landward areas, respectively, which are not provided with efficient water supply and also with modern water-closets for the children; the particular education authorities under whose jurisdiction such conditions prevail; and what steps he proposes to take to ensure that all schools will be properly equipped in the respects stated?


It will take some time to obtain the detailed information asked for in the first and second parts of the question, but I will supply it to the hon. Member on the completion of certain inquiries which are being made. The sanitary equipment of the schools is reported on by the inspectors of the Department on the occasion of their periodic visits, and matters calling for improvement are thereafter taken up with the education authorities concerned.
