HC Deb 06 April 1939 vol 345 c3034W
Mr. G. Griffiths

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether, in view of the fact that the report of the public inquiry held in November, 1938, at Long Crendon has been misunderstood, and that there were only 75 families with parents in favour of a Church of England school, he will now reconsider his decision in favour of a non-provided school?

Mr. Lindsay

No, Sir. The Board's' decision does not rest only upon the consideration of the wishes of parents but also on that of the other factors prescribed in Section 19 of the Education Act, 1921.
