HC Deb 25 January 1951 vol 483 c47W
74. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Education how many schools have been closed down this year on account of shortage of coal; and whether they are all now re-opened.

Mr. Tomlinson

Local education authorities are not required to inform me about temporary closure of schools but in the instances known to me, which were few in number and of short duration, the schools are all now open again.
