HC Deb 02 March 1931 vol 249 c50W

asked the President of the Board of Trade the average price of wheat and of flour in this country in 1913, 1924, and 1930; and the average price of bread in each of these years?


The prices are shown in the following table:

I am always ready to consider proposals for the provision of additional accommodation. Since the present Government took office, 25 new special schools for physically defective children have been certified by the Board, and proposals have been approved for 10 new schools which have not yet been opened. Provision will be made in these 35 schools for 3,708 day and 631 residential pupils. In addition, local education authorities are encouraged to establish orthopaedic schemes, not necessarily involving attendance at a special school, for the cure of crippling defects. The total number of such schemes is now 212, and of these 29 have been approved since the present Government took office.
