HC Deb 12 July 1938 vol 338 cc1125-6W
Mr. Leckie

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether he will supply a Return showing by counties and county boroughs the number of new senior schools to be erected by local education authorities and the managers of non-provided schools, respectively, under the provisions of the 1936 Act, and the total estimated cost of the schools of each group?

Mr. Lindsay

It is not yet possible for the Board to state the number and cost of voluntary senior schools to be provided with aid from the local education authorities under the Education Act, 1936. Many proposals for such schools are still in an inchoate state and may never be realised. Similarly as regards council senior schools, schemes of reorganisation are in many cases still undetermined.
