HC Deb 13 May 1948 vol 450 c232W
39. Mr. J. Evans

asked the Minister of Education what steps are being taken to re-establish a residential school for deaf children in Glamorgan in place of the Royal Cambrian School which was evacuated to mid-Wales from Swansea in 1941 owing to war conditions and is now housed temporarily in unsuitable premises far removed from the homes of the great majority of these afflicted children.

Mr. Hardman

The managers bought a house at St. Mellons but unfortunately it was recently destroyed by fire when nearly ready for occupation by the school. They are now urgently negotiating for another property.
