HC Deb 31 January 1952 vol 495 cc61-2W
102. Mr. Ede

asked the Minister of Education what action it is proposed to take to improve the artificial lighting of the Burnham-on-Sea Council Infants' School since the electric mains are laid in the road immediately fronting it but candles are the only source of lighting on dark days and on winter afternoons.

Miss Horsbrugh

I understand that the local education authority do not consider this work urgent in comparison with the other claims on the investment resources available to them, and that they are giving priority to the improvement of sanitary facilities, water-supplies and heating.
