§ Mr. Barr
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether the Board has given its approval to the acquisition by the Lincoln (Lindsey) County Council under compulsory powers of the site of 20,150 square yards for school purposes at Skegness; whether the 594W site has been acquired, and, if so, what was the price paid; for what purpose the land had been used, and what was its rateable value previous to acquisition?
A compulsory purchase order for the acquisition of this land was confirmed by the Board on 30th December, 1937. I have not yet been informed that the acquisition has been completed or of the price. The properly is said to have been used in the summer months as a camping ground and in the winter as a football ground. I have no information as to its rateable value.
